James Taylor has postponed his tour for his latest album, American Standard, for a second time. It’s now scheduled to begin in Chicago on July 29. The tour had previously been postponed from it’s original 2020 dates due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It will run through August, and resume again in October. In September, Taylor will tour with Bonnie Raitt in Canada.
The new date for the show scheduled at San Francisco’s Chase Center won’t be until Oct. 29. That’s at the tail end of the tour. Previously, the concert was scheduled for May 27, 2020, and May of this year.
Previously purchased tickets will be honored for all of the rescheduled dates. Those who can’t make it to the rescheduled shows can reach out to their point of purchase for information on refunds.
American Standard is Taylor’s 19th studio album and his first since 2015’s Before This World.
Taylor and his opening act, Jackson Browne, issued a joint statement with the announcement:
“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. Of course we will be keeping a close eye and abide with all health and safety protocols throughout each venue and state. We can’t wait to get back on stage and see you out there soon.”
