Local News

ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — The Berglund Center announced another postponed event due to the coronavirus pandemic, this time the summer tour date for James Taylor and His All-Star Band with special guest Jackson Browne.

According to the release distributed by the Berglund Center on Friday, April 3, James Taylor and Jackson Browne’s entire U.S. tour will be rescheduled, possibly as soon as late summer depending on the advice of health officials.

“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.”
