You'd better get your Carole King concert tickets now. With a career that's spanned over five decades, she has a following that includes multiple generations of music lovers. When King is coming to town, it's a necessity to get Carole King tickets early. Her shows are often sold out.
Most people probably already know she didn't start her career as a performer. Her first success came as songwriter writing tunes for other musicians. Her first hit, co-written with then husband Gerry Goffin, was "Will You Love Me Tomorrow," which was recorded by The Shirelles and became the first number one hit by a girl group.
This initial success was followed by a string of hits, all written for other musicians. Songs like "Take Good Care Of My Baby," "The Loco-Motion," "Go Away Little Girl" and "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman." These songs were recorded by some of the biggest acts of the era, including Bobby Vee, Steve Lawrence, Aretha Franklin and The Monkees. Today, even if she only sang songs she wrote during this period, people would clamor for tickets to Carole King shows.
In the 1970s, however, King was to build a new career for herself as a performer. It's her output from this period that's largely responsible for making Carole King tickets the hot commodity they've become. This big turning point began in 1971 with the album "Tapestry," composed of songs written and performed by her, songs like "So Far Away," "It's Too Late" and "You've Got a Friend." The album was an instant success and suddenly tickets to Carole King shows were in demand.
"Tapestry" produced many hit singles and garnered lots of radio play. It held the number one spot on Billboard for 15 weeks and remained on the "Hot 100" for almost six years. Now, over forty years later, it still holds the record for the most consecutive weeks at number one by a female artist. No wonder tickets to Carole King shows are in such demand.
Even in the 21st century her career continues to soar and Carole King concert tickets are still in demand. In 2010 she released a live album with James Taylor, which was certified gold. This album, as well as the continuing radio play of her earlier material, has introduced her to a younger generation of listeners, increasing demand for Carole King concert tickets.
Her appeal is wide. Her talent is great. Her shows feature only the best veteran backup musicians. If you want to see her, you'd better buy your cheap Carole King tickets early.
