ROANOKE, Va. – Mark your calendars for 2021 because James Taylor and Jackson Browne have announced a rescheduled date to perform in Roanoke.

They’ll be at the Berglund Center on June 23, 2021.

Previously purchased tickets will be honored for the rescheduled date and fans are encouraged to hold onto their tickets.

If you cannot attend the new date, reach out to your point of purchase for information on refunds.

Here’s a statement from Taylor and Browne on the rescheduling of their tour:

“Disappointing as it is to have to reschedule these shows, our first tour together, James/Jackson and I look forward with intense excitement to next spring when, hopefully, we’ll finally get to set this thing in motion. We were hoping to reschedule the tour a bit sooner but the experts we consulted have advised waiting for a full year. We thank you all for your patience and understanding and are really encouraged by the majority of you who are holding onto your tickets. We WILL honor them.”


James Taylor has postponed his tour with Jackson Browne due to coronavirus.

The tour, including a concert in Roanoke on June 23, has been postponed until further notice.

This comes after Jackson Browne tested positive for coronavirus, according to the Rolling Stone.

According to a release sent out by the Berglund Center, tour officials say the tour could be rescheduled as soon as late summer, pending advice from health officials.

Below is a statement from James Taylor and Jackson Browne:

“As this summer’s tour of 27 towns and cities across the US drew near, we’ve been increasingly excited to hit the road again. So it’s deeply disappointing for both of us to have to call it off and reschedule (and reschedule we WILL)! As we all now realize, COVID-19 is a serious, real and present danger. Moreover, our public health is all of our responsibility. So let us listen to and follow the directions of our public healthcare people and support their efforts in this unprecedented time of global pandemic. Love those around you and, above all, stay safe and healthy.”
