Billy Joel Comeback Complete: Booked to Play on the Grammy Awards Along with New Single — Mystery Collaboration?


Billy Joel’s “comeback” is in full swing.

The Piano Man has agreed to play on the Grammy Awards on February 4th. That will be two days after he releases his first new single in 31 years.

The Grammys have already announced a few big acts, but they’re also expecting Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus. Since the Grammys are famous for having superstar collaborations, imagine Billy with Taylor. He once called her the Beatles of her generation.

Billy is really “Turning the Lights Back On” in a big way!

He’s actually never been away to have a comeback. Billy’s finished up a record 150 shows at Madison Square Garden, in July. He’s also touring more than ever doing one shot dates around the world.

But this activity definitely is connected to Billy turning 75 this year.

Whatever the reason, it’s great to have him so active. We always need more Billy Joel. Let’s hope he turns ALL the lights back on and gives us an album this year!
