James Taylor Back Onboard Queen Mary 2 in 2014

Cunard Line has announced that Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter James Taylor will perform during Queen Mary 2's10th anniversary year, joining the flagship on 27 August 2014 for an eight-day Transatlantic crossing from New York to Southampton (via Halifax, Nova Scotia).

The legendary singer and his band will headline two performances’ in the ship’s Royal Court Theatre during the voyage.

Queen Mary 2 is an iconic vessel and has seen many famous faces since her launch in 2004. She offers guests voyages all over the world, but her timeless transatlantic voyage is always one of the most exciting. We are sure this one will be no exception.

James Taylor said “I’ve always wanted to take an ocean liner back to Europe, and in August 2009 we got the chance to do that. It’s such a civilised way to go, and Queen Mary 2 is the last word in first-class travel. In 2009, we realised a collective dream using that passage to transport and rehearse for our European summer tour: band, crew and family - kit and caboodle. Now, in 2014, I am looking forward to celebrating the ship’s 10 th anniversary alongside her crew, and guests by performing two on board concerts as my band and I make our next European passage. Hallelujah, no jet lag!”

James Taylor is among the most recognised voices in popular music and his distinctive style of guitar-playing has been hugely influential. Over the course of his career, he has sold over 100 million albums, earning gold, platinum and multi-platinum awards.
