5.0 star rating Linda Chiappone from Cincinnati, Ohio


His Cincinnati concert was my fourth, the second at an outdoor venue. The weather was unmercifully hot and humid, even by my Charleston SC standards, but nothing could put a damper on an outstanding evening with James Taylor. Our seats were great especially considering we got them only after the original concert had been rescheduled. The visual effects added another dimension to the show. This song list was more varied than the previous concerts but it just helped me appreciate what a range this man has. Plus it really showcased his very talented All Star Band. James Taylor somehow manages to continue to perform in front of huge crowds yet make me feel like we're all just there for a few stories and some great music.

We came from NC to Boston in part to see JT. He and his band (including his wife and son) were engaging, magical, humorous with his commentary in between songs, and ALL music was simply fabulous. Truly! At his ascending age, his stage presence and voice are both captivating - as they always have been. He actually seems to be happier now as a performer than in his younger years. He meandered through classic masterpieces and added a few songs that we had never heard before (one about his childhood pig/pet, Mona, and one about the Red Sox). The crowd was just enthralled, on their feet singing, clapping and adoring. He did 5 encore numbers (in 3 encores), concluding with an emotion-evoking duet with his son. This concert was worth EVERY penny, and we left just humming along, his music forever a part of us. Thank you JT!

JT at the Arts Center was my first concert. I was 16 years old and it was a magical summer night. Here I am 50 years later at the same venue, listening to James again. Equally as mesmerizing. He’s funny, he knows what his fans love to hear, and he truly enjoys what he does. No one can match that beautiful voice. Great night.

I attended the JT Concert last night with my wife and several other couples. While pretty much everyone was disappointed that Bonnie Raitt was not going to perform, we looked forward to a good concert. We've seen JT perform in the Key Arena in the past and enjoyed the venue and sound was great. For last night’s concert I have to say that the sound was subpar. Concert goer’s major experience is the sound! It’s the predominate factor in a performance. We were reasonably close to stage left, so the sound was not reverberating but direct. We experienced the backup vocals overpowering JT. The kick drum was so overly emphasized that the bass line was completely lost. This is very disappointing, as the cost to attend has increased beyond a reasonable amount, and the concert goers are entitled to excellent sound at those prices. There is no excuse for that element of the concert missing the mark. JT was his typical self, engaging with the Seattle crowd, and gave his usual great performance. The JT All-star Band was also great. Even with Bonnie Raitt not appearing, I WOULD have rated the concert higher, if the sound would have been up to the professional level for a concert of this magnitude.

I was off to the left of the stage and the sound was muffled at best. No one around me could hear what he said most of the time nor could we see the images played only on the center screen. Definitely not Red Rocks.
