James Taylor and Carole King are going back to their roots.

The two singer-songwriters say they will go on a long concert tour together next year, recalling the first time they played at the Troubadour Club in Los Angeles in 1970.

That gig was a milestone, marking King's debut as a solo artist. Taylor had just recorded "Carolina In My Mind" and "Something in the Way She Moves." Both continued on to award-winning careers.

They reunited two years ago with the band they used in 1970 for a celebration of the club's 50th anniversary. They enjoyed it so much they wanted to take it on the road.

The tour begins in Australia in March and hits Los Angeles in May. They've only announced seven dates, but promise more will come.
