Billy Joel made his debut at The World’s Most Famous Arena on December 14, 1978. The longtime Long Island resident set the record for “most consective performances by any artist” in 2006 with a 12-show run. Phish’s Baker’s Dozen residency broke that record in 2017. Joel launched his monthly residency in January 2014. He’s since played the arena each month besides a few rescheduled shows due to illness and a pause thanks to the pandemic.

Next up for Joel is a co-headlining stadium show in Philadelphia with Stevie Nicks on June 16. Billy then takes a trip to London for a massive one-off show in London on July 7 before resuming his residency at The Garden on July 24. A full list of tour dates can be found below.
