Singer-songwriter icon Billy Joel has been playing a concert a month at NYC arena Madison Square Garden for the past few years, but he still finds time to get outside the 212 — like this spring, when he’ll headline Citizens Bank Park for a sixth consecutive year.
The concert happens on May 24th, and tickets go on sale on Friday, January 11th, at 10 a.m. via LiveNation.
In addition to the gig, the Philadelphia Phillies and Live Nation Philly have made Joel the first music franchise at Citizens Bank Park (he holds the record for most performances at the 15-year-old venue), and presented him with a key to the stadium. Don’t get too excited, though — there are no monthly Billy Joel concerts at Citizens Bank Park on the horizon. Just the one gig for now, and a pop-up Billy Joel merch booth where fans can buy Billy Joel music and apparel at all Phillies games in May leading up to it.
More information can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar. Listen to some Billy Joel classics below.
