MAGICAL NIGHT AT THE PRUDENTIAL CENTER
Two artists at the top of their game. A devoted audience was rewarded with powerful upllifting performances from James and Bonnie . They created an authentic intimacy in a cavernous space. Great songwriting, guitar playing and vocal performances backed by inspired musicians that both artists seemed proud to feature. They did their fair share of their hit songs and connected with the audience. All round wonderful evening .

WISH IT WOULDN'T END
What a night it was last night. James and Bonnie never disappoint. Great music with an awesome band. Has me humming toons since I left. Very humbling to be in the presence of greatness. 50 years and they still got it. What a night.

THE AUTHORS DON'T HAVE A CLUE
These are 2 Great artists. But the Washington Theater site here, whoever wrote this, got it wrong: James Taylor did not write You've Got a Friend, Carole King did. I'm sure James and Carole could care less about this mistake, but if you're a pro, don't assume, do some research before you write on your site and put it out there, Put some more effort into it next time.

JAMES TAYLOR AND BONNIE RAITT
Awesome! He just gets better! Totally delivered everything I wanted! What a night! We were on the field, only complaint was a half hour to get to restrooms! Ate at Palamino and it was great! Took Uber to and from! Great!

JAMES & BONNIE IN BUFFALO JULY 1ST - GREAT SHOW!
A mostly full Key Bank Center enjoyed a fabulous night of late 60's to early 2000's music classics. Starting right on time, Bonnie did a 60 minute set, introduced by JT, with current and classic (Nick of Time) rhythm & blues. Mosty rockin, Bonnie took time to sing a blues acoustic solo along with a nice finish Ishmael with JT. Bonnie's voice is as good as ever, smooth & soul sounding. James Taylor background set with multiple video clips & graphics was impressive as was the band including sax, trumpet, flute and Mexican drum & rhythm man. Great sound, lots of JT classics from Carolina On My Mind to Fire & Rain to...you name it for 95 minutes of classic James Taylor. 3 person vocals were spot on with harmonies with JT. Overall, well prepared, seamless, great sounding & classic. Beautiful show... Bob Buffalo, NY

BONNIE RAITT/JAMES TAYLOR
I was honored to see & enjoy the vast musical talents of Bonnie & her band & James with his band, on 6/25/18 in Grand Rapids, MI. They were both top notch & I was thrilled to see them, having loved them both, since the 70s. They’ve assembled superb bands featuring talented artists & both Bonnie & James introduced their band members & let them have solo moments to shine. They each played many familiar favorites and I was reminded again what great storytellers they each are. The songs & their demeanor spoke of love. It was a peaceful evening of fantastic music! The audience was enthralled, and many were singing along. It truly was a magical night! The venue was very large, but cozy, had comfy seats, was organized getting in & out, & there were a number of food & beverage choices inside the venue. I live about 90 minutes south of Grand Rapids, but it was an easy drive, parking was readily available & I’m sure I’ll be returning soon.

BETTER WITH AGE
Bonnie Raitt and James Taylor both put on stellar performances last evening. We've seen Bonnie many times and I believe this was her strongest supporting band. We've seen James Taylor a few times and we enjoyed his different arrangements to some of his best songs. It's the first time we've seen him with a production like this and it was special. He also talked about the background of several songs. Both performers seemed very relaxed, humble, awed by their bands to whom they bestowed immense credit and were not in a hurry. I think that comes with age and survival. On a sad note, we were unfortunate to sit in front of a woman who talked incessantly during songs.. Another patron and I had to ask her to be quite. Is it me or is this becoming more prevalent? I can't imagine paying significant dollars for a seat at a concert, any concert, and thinking you are somehow more entertaining than the performers on stage. What's the matter with these people?
