Billy Joel is gearing up to hit the road again, according to MassLive.com. The “Piano Man” is going through with his upcoming tour itinerary, hitting ball fields this spring and summer and resuming his Madison Square Garden residency this fall.
As it stands now, Billy has six stadium gigs and six Garden concerts on the itinerary, with the first show of the year set for April 17th at Charlotte, North Carolina's Bank of America Stadium.
Although no one would fault Billy Joel if he wanted to keep things mellow and just perform his single Madison Square Garden residence show every month, hitting the road and taking the stage just after eight p.m. has always been in his blood: “I'm from the old school, I started out as a performer. Before I ever made a record, I was playing in bands in clubs and bars, and dances, Sweet 16's; so that's what I do. I don't think anything really replaces a live performance.”
