James Taylor and Jackson Browne have announced new dates for the tour they originally planned for the summer of 2020. They are now scheduled to kick things off on July 29th, 2021 at the United Center in Chicago and wrap up November 1st at the Pechanga Arena in San Diego. Tickets for the original shows will be honored at the new dates.

“We want to thank all those who have graciously held onto their tickets; we appreciate your continued patience as we navigate these unchartered waters,” they said in a dual statement. “We didn’t want to have to cancel this tour that we’ve been waiting so long to perform together, so we’ve been working to get these dates rescheduled to a time period when the U.S. is reopened and safe to gather for a concert.”

The tour is hitting at mixture of outdoor amphitheaters and indoor arenas; there hasn’t been North American concert in venues of that size since the start of the pandemic in March 2020. As of now, it’s not entirely clear if said shows will be permitted in every market when this tour is supposed to launch in July. “Of course we will be keeping a close eye and abide with all health and safety protocols throughout each venue and state,” they said in their statement. “We can’t wait to get back on stage and see you out there soon.”
