Posted on

James Taylor will be performing at the Apollo Theater in a special, invitation-only concert for SiriusXM subscribers Tuesday, June 16, the same day his new album, Before This World, officially drops. The Grammy winner announced the concert during an interview on The Howard Stern Show Tuesday. 

The concert will stream live on SiriusXM’s James Taylor Channel, which is scheduled to launch Friday, May 22, at 6 p.m. ET through Sunday, June 21. The limited-run channel will feature music from Taylor’s entire music catalog, including his new album.   

During the interview with Howard Stern, Taylor discussed a run-in with Neil Young in Nashville that led to the singer performing on Young’s “Old Man.” (It was him on the banjo.) 

“My son Henry, or Rufus, my boy Rufus, will be playing that song on the computer or Henry will be trying to figure it out on the guitar,” Taylor said, “and I’ll say, ‘Ya know, I played on that song.'”
