Billy Joel Books 18th Monthly Concert at Madison Square Garden for June 2015


If he plays it, you will come. Billy Joel has booked his 18th monthly concert in a row at Madison Square Garden– for June 2015. It will be his 64th lifetime show there, tying Elton John’s record. That means in July 2015, Billy will break the record of all time number of shows at the famed venue. I guess then he moves in with Jim Dolan and his family. It’s quite a feat! The great singer songwriter performer hasn’t released a new album since 1993. But his catalog of hits is huge. And obviously, a lot of people are enjoying singing along to “Piano Man.” Bravo, Billy!
