Happy Birthday to Billy Joel, who turns 72 on Sunday (May 9th)!!! The “Piano Man” has just added a new concert to his itinerary, with an October 23rd show in Austin, Texas, set for the Formula 1 2021 Aramco United States Grand Prix. The show will play at the Germania Insurance Super Stage, with tickets for the Formula 1 Grand Prix and concerts now on sale now via TheCircuit.com/F1.
The show marks Billy's first Austin gig since November 17th, 1990 when he played the Frank Erwin Center, in support of his then-recent chart-topping 1989 set, Storm Front.
Last year, Billy and wife Alexis have announced that their Joel Foundation would be making a series of donations amounting to $500,000 for aid and relief for the coronavirus pandemic. The couple issued a statement explaining, “Our first donation will be $500,000 in the form of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). BStrong (Bethenny Frankel‘s disaster relief initiative) will immediately purchase masks, corona (virus test) kits and hazmat suits for the doctors and nurses in hospitals that are in dire need.”
