A household name since the 1970s, Billy Joel's music spans countries, cultures, and even genres, from pop-rock to jazz to doo-wop. His fifth studio album, "The Stranger," was released in 1977 and–by popular consensus–sent him to superstardom. He also penned countless jukebox classics such as "It's Still Rock and Roll to Me" and the infectiously catchy "Uptown Girl."
The legendary singer-pianist boasts six wins from the prestigious Grammy Awards, including a Grammy Legend Award in 1991. He was also inducted into three major music Halls of Fame: Songwriters (1992), Rock and Roll (1999), and Long Island Music (2006). In 2016, he received the highly sought-after Kennedy Center Honors for his artistic contributions to American culture.
The shows will begin this October and conclude in July of next year. The Madison Square Garden–our venue–is one of the world's most extravagant arenas for the performing arts. Fitted with the best concert facilities available, from staging setups to seating areas, audiences can experience Billy's breathtaking songs and symphonies to their fullest extent!
