James Taylor and Bonnie Raitt At Manchester Arena

James Taylor and Bonnie Raitt

James Taylor and Bonnie Raitt played the Manchester arena together last Monday. (July 10th 2018) The arena had the top seating covered up and the stage moved forward to create an intimate venue, not something I’ve seen before at the Manchester Arena.  A few years ago, Paul Simon & Sting, had the top blocked out but the stage in the normal position.  James Taylor Introduced Bonnie Raitt and Bonnie played for an hour with her band, she had the place rocking! After around a 20 minutes break James Taylor came back on and played hit after hit, it was an incredible show. The atmosphere in the arena was electric.  We had great seats on the right-hand side of the stage in row D.
