In December 2013, the Madison Square Gardensurprised music aficionados when it announced that it had acquired a new, completely unexpected franchise, which would join the venue’s other franchises, such as the Rangers, Knicks, and Liberty.
As it turned out, that franchise was...none other than the piano man himself! In an unprecedented move, Billy Joel took up residence at the world’s most renowned arena, and confirmed that he would play a concert at the Garden every month, indefinitely. Witness the phenomenon that is Billy Joel as he takes over the Garden and other storied venues!

Billy Joel and the Garden have a memorable relationship; in 2006, Joel’s tour included 12 concerts at the famous arena, all of which were completely sold-out. Joel’s feat broke the record previously held by Bruce Springsteen, and the Garden even retired his number (12). For Joel, the record held special significance, as he grew up on the streets of New York City, dreaming and hoping that one day he would delight audiences at the Garden with his music.
To some, the contract between Joel and the Garden may seem utterly radical and a predictable failure just waiting to happen. The truth, however, is that the prediction would certainly be true if it was for any other artist other than Billy Joel.
The fact of the matter is that Billy Joel is unlike any other artist in music history. A six-time Grammy winner, Joel is the third-best-selling solo artist in the United States, and the sixth best-selling recording artist in history. He’s sold over 150 million records worldwide, and has inducted in the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Recently, he has received America’s most prestigious award, the Kennedy Center Honors, for influencing American culture through the arts.
If these statistics and accolades attest to anything, it’s that Joel’s music is timeless. The endurance and perpetuity ofBilly Joel’s music is not only reflected in the artist’s accolades and fan base, but also in his versatility and diversity. To limit Joel to the keys of the piano would be a grandiose mistake, as Joel has established himself as a master of musical genres such as rock, R&B, doo woop, and soul.
In the end, all roads lead to one conclusion; Billy Joel’s music is universal, making him the perfect franchise for an arena that is on par with his potency and talent.
Not only will Joel be making appearances at New York City’s Madison Square Garden but, in 2015, he will also be performing at venues such as San Francisco’s AT&T Park, Philadelphia’s Citizens Bank Park, and Chicago’s Wrigley Field. In addition, the piano man will close out Uniondale’s Nassau Veterans Coliseum ahead of renovations.
