Spend a nice summer evening at your favorite ballpark listening to the sounds of the legendary singer/songwriter James Taylor and Bonnie Raitt on Saturday, July 29 at 7 p.m. in San Francisco at AT&T Park.

Concert-goers can hop onto Caltrain and ride to the last San Francisco stop at 4th and King Street. Take a short walk towards AT&T Park across the street from the train station, and enjoy a breathtaking view and classic design of the San Francisco Giant’s home stadium.

James Taylor has sold more than 100 million albums since he was first signed by the Beatles to their Apple Records label. Taylor has earned 40 gold, platinum or multi-platinum awards, and his Greatest Hits album alone sold more than 10 million copies. Taylor will be appearing with his All Star Band for the first time at AT&T Park. This special evening will also feature Taylor’s guest, Bonnie Raitt and her band. Bonnie Raitt is a 10-time Grammy winner, and is also a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Both Taylor and Raitt are touring to four Major League stadiums this summer. This special evening of music is Taylor’s only California performance date this summer, so don’t miss it and get your tickets soon.

Caltrain is a proof-of-payment system: tickets aren’t sold onboard trains but can be purchased at ticket machines at the stations. Passengers are encouraged to purchase a Day Pass at Caltrain ticket machines to avoid long lines. The pass is valid for unlimited rides within zone limits on Caltrain through the last train. Caltrain reminds fans to drink responsibly and to remember that open containers of alcohol are not allowed on trains after 9 p.m. following special events.

Parking at Caltrain stations costs $5.50 for the day, and permits can be purchased through ticket machines onsite. Paid parking rules are enforced throughout the day.
