Performing without Carole King or any other co-headliner this time  --  not even an opening act, in fact -- James Taylor will return to Xcel Energy Center for an “evening with” concert Nov. 2. Tickets go on sale Sept. 5 for $67 and $91.50 through Ticketmaster or the arena box office.

Last seen with King at the X in 2010, the North Carolina-bred Rock and Roll Hall of Fame singer/songwriter, 66, has been playing 2½ hours worth of tunes split into two sets on tour this year, accompanied by his veteran All-Star Band. And yes, "Sweet Baby James," "Fire and Rain" and "Carolina in My Mind" have made the cut every night.
