Billy Joel Announces Six Stadium Tour Dates for Summer 2017; Tickets On Sale!
Billy Joel has actively been performing at his residency at Madison Square Garden, which is now heading into its fourth year, and there are no plans for the Piano Man to slow down just yet. The legendary singer just announced a string of stadium dates to kick off this spring and summer, including cities like Los Angeles, Boston and Philadelphia.
Billy Joel will kick off his short trek of appearances on April 28 with a stop in Cumberland, Georgia, at SunTrust Park, which will serve as the first concert ever at the new home of the Atlanta Braves. He will continue on to play his debut show at Progressive Stadium in Cleveland, Ohio on July 14, and will then hit the east coast for a stop at Fenway Park in Boston on Aug. 30. Last will be at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia on Sept. 9, where this short stadium route is scheduled to wrap up.
Along with these newly-added stops to his 2017 schedule, Billy Joel continues to announce shows each month at Madison Square Garden as part of his ongoing residency. As it stands, Billy Joel tickets for his shows at Madison Square Garden are currently averaging $346. Some of his higher in-demand nights include Feb. 22, when tickets are registering an average of $308, with the cheapest ticket found for $76, and on March 3, with tickets selling for as high as $463 and as cheap as $83 on that night.
Several of the stadiums that Billy Joel has on the bill will not only be hosting the singer, but honoring him and his achievements as well. The Chicago Cubs will establish a Billy Joel Day in the spring during one of their home games, and Philadelphia will hang a banner recognizing the six concerts he has performed throughout his career at their stadium. The city of Philadelphia will also pronounce Sept. 9 as Billy Joel Day. In 2014, Billy Joel was established as the first-ever music franchise at Madison Square Garden alongside the Knicks, Rangers and Liberty.
