LOS ANGELES, CA - Carole King: The Living Room Tour  was a return to honesty and basics with an intimate production reminiscent of her earliest performances as a singer/songwriter. King's first concert tour in over a decade was inspired by the simplicity of the shows King performed in living rooms and small venues around the country this year in support of Presidential candidate John Kerry. However, for this tour, it was all about the music.

BOSTON, MA - Lifetime Television and Rock the Vote hosted a Late Night Party, "Every Woman Counts," at the Park Plaza Hotel in Boston, in conjunction with the Democratic National Convention.

Entertainment for the event was provided by Carole King and Vanessa Carlton who performed separately and together for the first time. The focus of the event was to celebrate and inspire women to vote and also to run for public office.

LOS ANGELES, CA - The set list on Carole King's Living Room Tour  was very fluid. King's first concert tour in over a decade was an intimate production, a showcase for songs and songwriting that included a new song written, or at least begun, on stage each night by King, her guitarist/ musical director/ producer, Rudy Guess and one of Carole's favorite co-writers, award-winning songwriter, Gary Burr. Changing nightly, her set list reflected what King and her musical accompanists felt like performing that day.

LOS ANGELES, CA - An the eve of her upcoming concert tour, Carole King was interviewed by Wolf Blitzer on CNN, July 12, 2009 at 5:45pm Eastern time.

In addition to preparing for the tour, King performed and campaigned for Presidential candidate John Kerry and is also active with current environmental issues.
