TOKYO, JAPAN - After an incredibly successful tour last November with Fergie and Mary J. Blige, dates have just been confirmed for Carole King to take her Living Room Tour back to Japan this November.

We are pleased to announce:

NEW YORK, NY - One of music’s most prolific songwriters invites fans for an intimate, career-spanning concert. Filmed during Carole King’s sold-out, critically acclaimed 2005-2006 Living Room World Tour, the performance special follows the trajectory of her 40-plus year career: from her inauspicious beginnings as the self-described "lyrically challenged" member of Brooklyn high school girl group the Co-Sines to a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer whose songs have topped the charts for artists from an impressively wide range of genres.

SANTA MONICA, CA - When Carole King presented at the 50th Annual GRAMMY® Awards, she took some time backstage to autograph some memorabilia to be used by the GRAMMY® Awards to benefit their charities, MusiCares and the GRAMMY® Foundation. One of those items was a limited edition copy of the commemorative book "And The Grammy Goes To...". This book was recently auctioned off on eBay, raising several hundred dollars for charity.

MANCHESTER, NH - Following her week-long string of concert performances on the East Coast, Carole King went on to complete three days of campaigning throughout New Hampshire for Democratic Presidential candidate Barack Obama.

LENOX, MA - Carole King surprised and delighted the sold-out crowd at Tanglewood tonight by appearing on stage with James Taylor to honor him for his 60th birthday. She remarked to James, "Welcome to the 60s," which elicited a big laugh from the audience.

She performed "(You Make Me Feel Like a) Natural Woman," "Up on the Roof," and "You've Got a Friend" with James and his band.

"I always think that playing with James can't possibly get any better," Carole said, "and then each time it does."


LOS ANGELES, CA - When Carole King appeared on the Tavis Smiley show back in March, she performed two songs at the taping of that show. Due to the length of the interview, the show only aired one song, "Where You Lead, I Will Follow". Until now. The second song she performed, "Home Again," was included in an episode of the Tavis Smiley Show that began airing on PBS in July, 2008.
