James Taylor works through a sound check before his concert at Tanglewood in 2014. Taylor’s Aug. 31 performance at Tanglewood, rescheduled from last sumer, has been postponed until July 4, 2022.

LENOX — For the second consecutive summer, there will be no James Taylor concert at Tanglewood.

Although a 50 percent increase in capacity for Tanglewood allows 9,000 tickets to be sold for all performances, Taylor’s Aug. 31 performance has been postponed to July 4, 2022. That’s because this season’s show had been rescheduled from July 4, 2020, and more than 15,000 tickets had been sold for that date.

“I’m disappointed and frustrated to have to announce the postponement of my August 31 concert at Tanglewood,” Taylor said in a statement for The Eagle and his website, also relayed by the Boston Symphony Orchestra.

“At this point, more than 15,000 people have bought tickets for our August show and trying to organize the displacement of over 6,000 ticket holders is an impossible task,” Taylor said. “Who loses their seat and how do we accommodate them?”

However, he added, “We acknowledge and support the Tri-Town Health Department’s responsibility to protect our citizens’ well-being, but it’s frustrating to have to ask you to wait until the 4th of July next year.”

Tickets purchased for the original date — July 4, 2020 — will be honored on July 4, 2022. Ticket buyers are encouraged to hold onto their tickets, Taylor’s team stated in a note on his website. But they asked ticket holders to reach out to their point of purchase should a refund be preferred, or if the tickets can be donated back to Tanglewood.

Those fans who can’t wait until next summer to see the singer/songwriter will have another opportunity less than two hours away. Taylor is expected to announce a show Aug. 24 at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC) in New York. Details about the pre-sale of tickets to JT’S fans and the on-sale date for the public should be released early next week.

Taylor is embarking on an extensive North American tour that begins July 29 in Chicago and ends Nov. 1 in San Diego, with 38 performances in major U.S. cities and arenas, as well as in several Canadian provinces from Newfoundland to British Columbia.

Meanwhile, the Boston Symphony confirmed other revisions to its Popular Artists schedule for this summer, with a 9,000 overall capacity limit, including all 5,000 seats in the Koussevitzky Music Shed.

• Brandi Carlile, with opening artist Mavis Staples, is slated for Aug. 21.

• Judy Collins, with guests Richard Thompson and Jesse Colin Young, will perform on Aug. 22.

• “Wait Wait ... Don’t Tell Me!,” the NPR quiz show, is set for Aug. 26.

Tickets for those shows will be available for purchase at www.tancglewood.org at 10 a.m. June 21.

In addition, for those who like to plan ahead, Ringo Starr’s concert, originally scheduled for dates last summer and this summer, is now rebooked for June 17, 2022.

The Mavericks and Los Lobos, first set for June 27 this summer, will be switched to next summer on a date to be announced.

Ticket holders to rescheduled concerts can hold onto their tickets for the new dates, donate the value of the tickets to the BSO; receive a credit toward a future purchase, or request a refund by emailing tickets@bso.org or calling 888-266-1200.

Two popular artists, Trey Anastasio and John Legend, originally scheduled for last summer have canceled their concerts.

Ticket holders to canceled concerts will be automatically refunded through their original point of purchase. On-sale dates for concerts rescheduled for summer 2022 will be announced later.
