GRAMMY Award winner James Taylor will bring more than four decades' worth of songs to the stage at Xcel Energy Center in Saint Paul, Minn., on Nov. 2 as part of his 2014 North American tour. This fall show will mark the first time in four years that Taylor has headlined this huge Twin Cities arena, and earlier concerts on the ongoing trek have featured more than two hours of music from the man behind acclaimed hits like "Fire and Rain" and "Sweet Baby James." Taylor will be joined on stage by an all-star band to bring life to his most memorable songs for this Sunday evening performance.
