Billy Joel Tour News and Updates
With unforgettable hits like “Piano Man“, “Big Shot” and “Just The Way You Are,“ singer/songwriter Billy Joel has been a constant in the hearts of rock n' rollers, penning memorable lyrics and genius melodies that weld his blues bar/jazz lounge roots, classical training and Broadway reverence into tunes that “transcended time.” In fact, the gifted pianist’s popularity grew so huge that The Stranger became Columbia Record’s top-selling album, and Joel tied The Beatles for most multi-platinum albums in the United States.
The “We Didn’t Start The Fire” singer is to receive a lifetime achievement Kennedy Center Honor later this year, historically known as the highest honor an artist can be granted in the States. And though the Piano Man has not been on the road since performing in early 2010 with Elton john in a co-headlining tour, Joel has slowly made his return to live music, performing at numerous benefits and touring overseas, before deciding to play a string of shows on the East Coast in 2014.
Surprising fans everywhere, the icon has just announced an unprecedented residency at Madison Square Garden
, the Bronx-native’s long-time home-away-from-home. His exclusive stay will be an indefinite monthly spectacle, effectively becoming MSG’s first-ever franchise musician. Initially the Piano Man lined up four shows at the Garden in 2014, in addition to four dates in Florida and one at the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The Florida shows are the cheapest of the bunch, starting at about $75, while most expensive minimum price is Billy Joel New York tickets
at Barclays for $185. You'll pay much less for Billy Joel Los Angeles tickets
where the legendary artist started his career as a lounge pianist. Do not miss this living legend as he reimagines hits new and old!
