Billy Joel has just announced his 84th show as part of his ongoing Madison Square Garden residency, set for October 9th. Amazingly, the concert will also mark the “Piano Man's” 130th lifetime gig at The Garden.
Tickets for the October show will be available for purchase by the general public beginning at 10:00 am ET on Friday, April 29th. BillyJoel.com posted “Due to congestion during the on-sale, it can be difficult to purchase tickets right away. Please continue to check Ticketmaster as tickets will be available throughout the day.”
Billy Joel told us Madison Square Garden represents far more than a just solid venue in the “Big Apple”: “Look, let's be real — I'm from New York, I was born in the Bronx, I grew up in Long Island, so this is my venue. Madison Square Garden. Fortunately for me, Madison Square Garden is a world venue. You can play almost any other arena in the country and nobody else in the world was gonna know about it — but when you play Madison Square Garden, the entire world knows that you played Madison Square Garden.”
