James Taylor, Bonnie Raitt coming to Tampa's Amalie Arena

James Taylor, his All-Star Band and his resort-town ways are heading to the Amway Center in Orlando. The multiple-Grammy victor has continued producing music throughout his 50-year career, with his last album, "Before This World", dropping in 2015, the same year he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Tickets are $46-$150.50 and go on sale at 11 a.m. January 19.

The legendary singer/songwriter has announced a June 28 stop at Summerfest in Milwaukee with Bonnie Raitt, but according to his website, there will be more dates to come, including one in Green Bay.

Taylor's first Summerfest performance was in 1975.

A couple of music legends hit the road together last summer, and they had so much fun they're doing it again. He has sold more than 100 million albums worldwide.

Taylor's 17th studio album "Before This World" was released in 2015. Rolling Stone also named her on both its 100 Greatest Guitarists and Greatest Singers of All Time lists.

Raitt found success later in her career when her 10th album, "Nick of Time", sold more than 5 million copies in the United States.
