Carole King

Hyde Park, London

As soon as we heard Tapestry was going to be played in full by Carole for the first time live, we signed up. My wife’s favourite album and one I so enjoyed.

Carole was amazing, and although her voice has mellowed, it was still distinctive, powerful and pitch perfect.

She was on stage for ages, thrilling everyone and not leaving a dry eye in the park.
We are so lucky to see so many great concerts, and this will rank up there with the best. What is there not to love about Carole King.
