The show will feature Taylor, his wife, Kim, singers Kate Markowitz and Arnold McCuller and Boston Symphony Orchestra cellist Owen Young performing at the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center. The first show sold out in 90 minutes on Tuesday, bringing in $150,000 for PIH, which was then matched by the Taylors. After the quick sellout, Taylor announced a second "Help for Haiti: An Intimate Evening With James Taylor" show for Saturday, saying on his official site, "The need in Haiti is so great and our community in the Berkshires is so generous. Performing another concert is the least I can do and, fortunately, the Mahaiwe is free the next night."
Tickets for the event range from $100 to $1000, with the high-end admission including a post-show reception with the performers. In other Taylor news, tickets are now on sale for the "Troubador Reunion" tour featuring him and Carole King. The duo originally performed together at the L.A. venue in 1970, a milestone that helped King launch her lauded solo career. After playing six reunion shows at the Troubador in 2007 for its 50th anniversary, the idea was hatched for them to take the show on the road again with many of their original bandmates. The trek kicks off in Australia on March 26 and hits North America in May.
