Legendary singers James Taylor and Bonnie Raitt have announced a 2018 U.S. tour, following a successful road trip together last year. The new tour seeks to continue the celebration of their “decades-long friendship.” Each artist will perform full sets in this exciting concert setup. A 5-time Grammy Winner, Taylor was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000 and remains one of the best selling musical greats of all time with more than 100 million records sold worldwide, thanks to epic hits like “Fire and Rain” and “You’ve Got a Friend.”
Raitt’s amazing array of success with her signature blues rock has resulted in a whopping 10 Grammy Awards and she was named #50 in Rolling Stone’s list of the “100 Greatest Singers of All Time.” Now here’s your chance to see both of these rock icons live in concert at the beautiful Amalie Arena in Tampa, FL. It’s all part of an amazing 3-night springtime getaway at the beautiful Westgate Town Center Resort & Spa.
