Billy Joel Announces Monthly Shows at Madison Square Garden


Billy Joel


The musician, who's named the fourth MSG's franchise, will play one show per month at the New York venue for indefinite future.

Billy Joel has announced his residency at Madison Square Garden in New York. In a press conference on Tuesday afternoon, December 3, the pianist said that he would play a show per month at the iconic venue for the indefinite future.

"Playing Madison Square Garden is an experience that never gets old," Joel said. "A show a month at the Garden for as long as there's demand means more opportunities to connect with music fans and provides a unique and memorable show every time we play here."

Joel becomes the fourth Madison Square's franchise, joining the Knicks, the Rangers and the Liberty. "Billy, having you as our music franchise feels a little like having the Pope as your parish priest," said MSG Executive Chairman James Dolan. "I'm truly an admirer and I grew up with your music, too, and so I'm thrilled to death."

Tickets for the first four shows, that are scheduled for January 27, February 3, March 21 and April 28, are already sold out. Tickets for the fifth show, which will happen on the star's 65th birthday on May 9, will be available for purchase on Saturday, December 7 at 10:00 A.M. There's still no word on when more dates will be announced.

The musician, who ended his three-year hiatus from the road early this year, has so far played 46 shows at the iconic MSG and he has set the record for most-consecutive sold-out concerts there with 12.
