Cunard Line will commemorate the 10th anniversary of Queen Mary 2 in 2014, and one of the most exciting highlights will be when the flagship welcomes back Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter James Taylor and his band for two special concerts during an Aug. 27 transatlantic crossing. Passengers onboard the eight-day sailing from New York to Southampton, England, via Halifax, Nova Scotia, will have the exclusive opportunity to enjoy these legendary performances in the Royal Court Theatre. In 2009, Taylor performed on the Queen Mary 2 during a transatlantic crossing.
Taylor is part of Cunard’s illustrious history of hosting famed entertainers with peerless cachet. Legendary notables such as Elizabeth Taylor, Rita Hayworth, Cary Grant and Clark Gable frequently crossed the Atlantic on Cunard’s earlier Queens, Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth; and since Queen Mary 2’s debut nearly 10 years ago, in addition to Taylor, the ship has welcomed musical notables such as jazz legend Dave Brubeck, Rod Stewart and Lenny Kravitz.
