Carole King is performing ‘Tapestry’, live in its entirety for the first time ever. And it’s happening in London this summer.
The 1971 album, which has sold over 25 million copies worldwide and inspired the musical ‘Beautiful’, will be played by King and her band at British Summer Time Hyde Park on 3 July 2016.
Apart from the four-time Grammy-winning album, which features hits like ‘I Feel The Earth Move’, ‘Will You Love Me Tomorrow?’ and ‘(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman’, King will perform songs from her 50-year career.
Also on the bill is another performer synonymous with the ‘70s California scene. As drummer and co-lead singer of The Eagles, Don Henley is responsible for such classics as ‘Desperado’ and ‘Hotel California’, while his solo career has been characterised by hits like ‘Boys Of Summer’ and ‘The End Of The Innocence’.
Rounding out the lineup is Louise Goffin, daughter of Carole King and the songwriter Gerry Goffin, a Grammy-nominated singer in her own right with seven albums to her name, including last year’s ‘Appleonfire’.
Tickets go on sale on 11 March.
