CAROLE KING RETURNS TO LONDON
One of the greatest albums of all time has never been performed live in its entirety, until now.
Destined to be among 2016’s most talked about events, Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park invites you to relive one of music’s great records.
Carole King’s Tapestry instantly transports a whole generation back to the 1970s golden age of Californian singer songwriters, while continuing to inspire cover versions to this day. It has even inspired a hit musical on both sides of the Atlantic – ‘Beautiful’, about Carole King’s extraordinary life.
On Sunday July 3rd, Carole King and her band will play the album in full, live for the first time, a genuine piece of music history and a very special night in London’s Hyde Park. Even compared to some of legendary performances seen at the event since 2013, this is a true landmark. In the beautiful summer surroundings of central London’s Hyde Park, sit back and experience ‘Tapestry’ like never before. In addition, she will also perform many of her other indelible hits.
“I want to begin by thanking Londoners for making Beautiful: The Carole King Musical so successful. And now I’m coming to London and can’t wait to perform Tapestry from beginning to end for the first time ever! How perfect to be doing that in the heart of one of my favourite cities.
I know I’m not alone in considering Don Henley one of the greatest songwriters of our time. I’m looking forward to hearing classic Eagles songs and other hits from Don and his band. And, as a lifelong fan of Louise Goffin I can only say that there’s nowhere else I’d rather be on 3 July 2016 than Hyde Park in the great city of London.”
