Live Nation is delighted to announce an extensive tour by one of Australia’s finest leading ladies, ESTHER HANNAFORD, joined by an all-star band to celebrate 50 years of Carole King’s landmark album, Tapestry.

Released on February 10, 1971, Tapestry immediately hit #1 on the Billboard chart and remained there for 15 consecutive weeks. 

Home to timeless classics such as ‘I Feel the Earth Move’, ‘So Far Away’, ‘You’ve Got a Friend’, ‘It’s Too Late’, ‘Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow’, ‘(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman’, the album resided on the Billboard charts for a staggering five years and went on to be the biggest selling female album of all time with more than 25 million copies sold, before being surpassed by another megastar, Whitney Houston. 

The 2021 50th anniversary tour will present Tapestry complete from start to finish as well as a selection of Carole King hits and songs she wrote for fellow multiplatinum selling artists. 

Singing these songs will be Esther, accompanied by a band comprised of some of Australia’s finest contemporary musicians that includes musical director and Jet bassist Mark Wilson; keyboardists Clio Renner and Louis Macklin; guitarist and vocalist Olivia Bartley (Olympia) and drummer Pete Marin.

Tapestry is still one of the most popular and enduring albums of all time and Carole King, of course, is also one of the most successful songwriters of all time. 

"In its time it connected with listeners like few records before it, and it remains an illuminating experience decades later.”

“Fulfilled the promise and confirmed that she is one of the most creative figures in all of pop music… an album of surpassing intimacy and musical accomplishment.”   Rolling Stone

“The songs of Tapestry are like companions for navigating the doubts and disappointments of everyday life with dignity.”   Pitchfork

Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, telling the story of Carole King’s life, began its Tony Award winning six-year run on Broadway in 2014 before debuting at Sydney’s Lyric Theatre in 2017. Performing seasons in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, Beautiful received standing ovations and sold in excess of 500,000 tickets. 

The Australian production starred Esther Hannaford as Carole King, for which Esther received rapturous reviews and clinched her second prestigious Helpmann Award - Best Female Actor in a Musical. 

“The audience rose like a wave and crested into cheers. The reason for it was clear: Esther Hannaford.”   The Guardian

“Esther Hannaford is brilliant……. her voice, intensity, heartfelt and pure, made the hair on my arms stand up!”   Australian Stage
