Set List: James Taylor & Jackson Browne @ Wrigley Field, Chicago

by VVN Music

James Taylor brought his current summer tour to Chicago's Wrigley Field on Thursday night with special guest Jackson Browne.

The two singer-songwriters, who both came into their own in the early-70's, are not touring together but did join up for two big baseball stadium shows, Wrigley and a August 3 performance at Fenway Park in Boston.

Browne opened the show with a ten song set that concentrated on a number of his best known songs from nine different albums with For Everyman contributing both These Days and Take It Easy. Taylor joined Browne on the final song of the set, For a Rocker from Lawyers in Love.

The set list:

  • Rock Me on the Water (from Jackson Browne/Saturate Before Using, 1972)
  • Just Say Yeah (from Time the Conqueror, 2008)
  • The Long Way Around (from Standing in the Breach, 2014)
  • Fountain of Sorrow (from Late For the Sky, 1974)
  • Somebody's Baby (from the soundtrack of Fast Times at Ridgemont High, 1982)

  • Running on Empty (from Running on Empty, 1977)
  • Take It Easy (from For Everyman, 1973)
  • For a Rocker (with James Taylor) (from Lawyers in Love, 1983)
After a break, Taylor took the stage with his own hits-heavy set that included four tracks from his breakthrough album, Sweet Baby James and, surprisingly, three from his 1991 set New Moon Shine

James only sang two songs from Before This World, his album that was number 1 exactly a year ago today, choosing instead to concentrate on his 70's output which accounted for 15 of his 22 selections. He also brought Browne back out late in the show to do his hit Doctor My Eyes.
