Performer Carole King returning to Hunter Valley

AMERICAN singer and songwriter Carole King will return to Australia early next year with a concert at Hope Estate in the Hunter Valley.

Considered one of the most successful female songwriters in popular music history, King will tour solo performing hits such as So Far Away, I feel the Earth Move, It’s Too Late and (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman.

The Australian tour, which also includes capital cities, marks King’s first visit to the country since her 2010 sold-out dates with fellow singer songwriter James Taylor.

The duo performed at Hope Estate in April 2010 as part of their Troubadour Reunion tour.

The Natural Woman  tour celebrates King’s 25 solo albums and more than 400 compositions that have been recorded by 1,000 artists.

King, 70, wrote her first number one and timeless classic Will You Love Me Tomorrow, at only 17 years of age for the Shirelles, with former husband Gerry Goffin. 

The performer released her self-penned memoir A Natural Woman in April this year.

She will perform at Hope Estate on Saturday February 16.

Tickets go on sale at 9am, Friday November 23.
