Billy Joel fans in The Big Apple can't seem to get enough of their hometown hero. Due to continued overwhelming popular demand, the six-time Grammy winner has extended his monthly residency with a new show, scheduled for May 23 in New York at Madison Square Garden.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer dropped the news on Dec. 14 at his official Billy Joel website on the heels of selling out his most recently announced 2018 date, slated for April 13 at The World's Most Famous Arena. The May addition will bring the “Just the Way You Are” hitmaker's record-breaking run at The Garden up to 52 consecutive shows.
Presales for the May 23 show will go on sale starting Mon., Dec.18 at 10:00 a.m. EST through Thurs., Dec. 21 at 10:00 p.m. EST. Tickets go on sale to the public starting Fri., Dec. 22 at 10:00 a.m. EST. Check out tickets for all of Billy Joel's MSG residency shows at AXS.
2018 is shaping up to be another big year for the legendary singer-songwriter. Along with five confirmed shows at Madison Square Garden, Joel already has four road dates booked, included a show on Feb. 9 in Tampa Bay, Fla., at Amalie Arena, as well as three stadium dates in Europe, starting June 16 in Manchester, U.K., at Old Trafford Football Ground.
Fans still have a couple of final chances to catch the beloved singer-songwriter before the year's end. The multi-platinum seller will perform his last residency show of 2017 on Dec. 20 in New York at The Garden, followed by his final show of the year on Dec. 31 in Sunrise, Fla., at BB&T Center.
