The Barclaycard presents British Summer Time concert takes place on Sunday, July 3
Carole King is to play her album Tapestry in full in London this summer.
King will play Hyde Park on Sunday, July 3 as part of Barclaycard presents British Summer Time.
“I want to begin by thanking Londoners for making Beautiful: The Carole King Musical so successful,” King said. “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.”
The last time King played the UK was in 1989.
The bill for the Hyde Park show also includes Don Henley and Louise Goffin, singer-songwriter daughter from her marriage to songwriting partner, Gerry Goffin.
King added: “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.”
