Billy Joel, The Piano Man, is one of the most successful singer/songwriters in modern memory. Like many other musicians in his generation, the music of the British Invasion of the 60s influenced his style and songwriting. He went from studio musician on rock classics like “Leader in the Pack” to Grammy Award winner in just a matter of years.
Billy Joel released 7 albums between the years of 1971 and 1980. Albums like “Piano Man”, “Street Life Serenade”, and “Glass Houses” became successful because of Joel’s musicianship and song writing skills. “New York State of Mind” and “You May Be Right” are songs that still sound fresh thirty years after they were first written and performed. In 2001 Joel added the occupation of Composer to list long list of achievements when he released the “Fantasies and Delusions” recording.
Audiences were reintroduced to Joel’s music with the introduction of the Tony Award winning Broadway show “Movin’ Out”. The musician, songwriter and singer has also won numerous Grammy Awards. Joel ranks with Elton John and Neil Diamond not only in terms of songwriting success but in the longevity of his career. His songs are energizing and imbued with much emotion.

OMG, My ears are hurting still I have always wanted to see Billy Joel live. He is one of my favorite artists and has been from the first day I heard him. He is also my age. Which is why I was stunned when I found my self eagerly waiting for his concert on April 3rd and his warm up band had me holding my ears with both hands on the second song. They played for 45 minutes and the screaming from the audience was intolerable along with their music which was impossible to categorize as anything other than abusive. I reassured myself in the 15 minute intermission between the two acts, repeating over and over, it won't be like this when Billy comes out. WRONG AGAIN. With the exception of a riff or two here and there and some monologue from Billy himself, abuse to my eardrums was unrelenting. It is three days since the concert and my ears still hurt. My friend and I had to leave during Billy Joel's third song. I am disappointed beyond the words I have used here and will never attend another live concert at MSG. My question is why??? April 5, 2015
billy joels concert at MSG Billy joels concert was a night to remember!! Two days later im still singing his songs. I felt like i saw two concerts in one when Gavin DeGraw opened up for him. His performance was a performance to stay with you for a lifetime. His songs selection took me back to my teenage years. Its a hard act to beat. I have to give the biggest thank you for this night to Ticket City. Anytime i want to see any performances or need tickets to any event Ticket City has never failed me. I recommend Ticket City to all my family and friends. This is a definte to go website. P.S. My seats and the pricing were out of this world. Already looking up other events i can purchase tickets for. March 11, 2015
