Billy Joel Makes Historic Announcement
Billy Joel had fans on the edge of their seats at a press conference yesterday at Madison Square Garden.
The legendary musician was there to make a historic announcement. Joel will become the New York's City venue's first ever resident performer.
Since 1978, the Piano Man has played 46 shows at MSG. And come January, Joel will play one concert every month as long as there is demand, according to Heavy.com.
Joel's MSG residency performances begin on January 27, with additional dates already scheduled for February 3, March 21 and April 18. All of those dates are sold out, the next available tickets are for his show on May 9, reports USA Today. He hasn't performed a solo gig in the US since 2008, though he has been playing to fans in the UK and Ireland in preparation for this residency.
Billy will be in a New York state of mind come New Year's Eve when he plays a one night stand at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
