On April 28, Joel will do the first live concert at the Atlanta Braves’ new stadium, SunTrust Park. This will mark the Piano Man’s first solo show in Atlanta since 2015. On May 13, he’ll perform at Los Angeles’ Dodger Stadium. On July 14, he’ll play at Progressive Field in Cleveland, and on August 11, he’ll return to Chicago’s Wrigley Field.
The Wrigley Field show will make Joel the first artist ever to play at the stadium four years in a row, and marks his sixth appearance there overall. In recognition of that accomplishment, the Chicago Cubs will honor Billy with his own day at the stadium, during which his music will be played throughout the game.
On August 30, Joel will play Boston’s Fenway Park and again, it’ll mark his fourth straight year appearing at the legendary ballpark — another record. To commemorate the occasion, the August 1 game at Fenway, featuring the Red Sox versus the Cleveland Indians, will be Billy Joel Night, offering a pre-game party, music and merchandise.
There’s a similar deal with Joel’s September 9 show at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia: once again, he’ll be the first artist to play four consecutive years at the stadium. Visit BillyJoel.com to find out when tickets go on sale for all these newly announced shows.
In between all those dates, Billy will play his regular Madison Square Garden residency shows, and he’s just announced his 41st consecutive monthly gig at the legendary arena for May 25. He also has dates scattered around the country in January, February and March. Check out all the details at BillyJoel.com.
