~~Billy Joel Announces 2014 Tour
Billy Joel is filling out his his recently announced hometown concert residency with a series of tour dates throughout 2014. Scattered among the New York City shows Joel has lined up in 2014 are a bunch of new concerts that will keep him busy across the U.S. through summer.
Last month, Joel announced that he would be performing a series of concerts at Madison Square Garden, a residency at the New York venue that could last until the Piano Man dies. The new concerts hit everywhere from Detroit and Nashville to Cleveland and Las Vegas.
The North American tour dates are spread out enough that Joel will be able to play the monthly Garden shows, which start in March, as well as get some downtime as he travels across the country. The full itinerary of his 2014 tour is below.
Among the concerts is a date at Chicago’s Wrigley Field on July 18, which marks the second time Joel has headlined a show there. The Chicago Tribune notes that this makes Joel the only artist to perform two headlining concerts at the venerable stadium. He previously played there in 2009 as part of his co-headlining tour with pal and frequent tourmate Elton John.
Tickets for some of the shows are available now. Others go on sale soon. You can find more info on Joel’s official website.
