Live Nation is thrilled to announce the return to Australia of one of music’s true legends - the most successful and esteemed female songwriter in popular music history - Carole King.
King will play concerts in all states during February 2013, touring here for the first time since her 2010 sold-out arena dates with fellow singer songwriter James Taylor.


Carole King brings a rich abundance of timeless compositions with her - including ‘So Far Away’, ‘I Feel The Earth Move’, ‘It’s Too Late’, ‘Jazzman’ and ‘(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman’.


As well as having released 25 solo albums, over 400 of King’s compositions have been recorded by in excess of 1,000 artists, resulting in 100 hit singles, including ‘You’ve Got A Friend’, ‘Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow’, ‘The Locomotion’ and ‘Up on the Roof’, many of which will be featured in these special evenings with one of the world’s most talented and prolific singer songwriters.


Tickets for all shows will go on sale at 9am, Friday November 23. My Live Nation members will be the first to access tickets during the exclusive pre-sale beginning midday Monday November 19. Head to www.livenation.com.au to register. Member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame, Carole King wrote her first #1 hit in 1960 at only 17 years of age, the timeless classic ‘Will You Love Me Tomorrow’ recorded by The Shirelles.


The dozens of chart hits written by Jerry Goffin and Carole King have become part of music legend, but it was 1971’s landmark album ‘Tapestry’ that took King to the pinnacle. It spoke personally to every one of her contemporaries and provided the emotional and musical backdrop to the decade.


Tapestry held the #1 spot in the US for 15 consecutive weeks, remaining on the charts for nearly 6 years, and sold 25 million units worldwide. It was the biggest selling pop album ever by a solo artist in the US, until surpassed by Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’.


In 1972 King became the first woman to win four Grammy Awards in one year, with ‘Tapestry’ winning all three key awards - Record, Song and Album of the Year - as well as Best Female Vocalist. With more than 25 million units sold, ‘Tapestry’ remained the best-selling album by a female artist for a quarter century. King went on to amass three other platinum and seven gold albums and has won countless awards over her 50-plus year career.


In April 2012 Carole King released her self-penned memoir, ‘A Natural Woman’, sharing the incredible story of her beginnings in Brooklyn to her groundbreaking achievements as a songwriter, as well as her first major performances with James Taylor and her long years of environmental and political activism. On publication, King’s memoir instantly charted in the top 10 of The New York Times best-sellers list.
