Billy Joel MSG Show Will Be Filmed March 28 for April 24th Broadcast on CBS (See Original Story)


I kind of scooped this info a couple of weeks ago.

Billy Joel’s March 28th show at Madison Square Garden will be taped not just for posterity but for broadcast on CBS on April 14th.

Read the end of my original story. I should have made it a headline, but I was on the run!

Billy has three shows left after March 28th — one in April, May, June each. Then he’s done with MSG after a record breaking run!

Still he tours like crazy, with Sting and with Stevie Nicks on different dates. The Piano Man is hard charging toward his 75th birthday in May.

And his single, “Turn the Lights Back On.” is such a hit that social media is filled with fan’s covers of the songs. That’s what you get when a real musician writes a real song! I only wish he’d write some more!
