James Taylor and Bonnie Raitt will team up for show at Prudential Center


James Taylor and Bonnie Raitt will perform together at the Prudential Center in Newark, July 6.

Old friends James Taylor and Bonnie Raitt will join forces for a tour this summer that will begin at the Prudential Center in Newark, July 6. Both will bring their own bands and play separate sets, though a collaboration at some point in the show is, obviously, also possible.

Tickets, priced from $41 to $151, go on sale March 10 at 10 a.m.; visit Ticketmaster or prucenter.com.

Other Northeast shows will include the Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh, N.Y., July 7; the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, July 9; and Fenway Park in Boston, Aug. 11.

Raitt released a new studio album, Dig in Deep, last year, while Taylor’s last one was Before This World, in 2015.

Here is a video of Taylor and Raitt performing together on “Thing Called Love” — a John Hiatt-written song that was a hit for Raitt in 1989 — at Fenway Park in 2015.
