In recent years, the multi-Grammy Award winner and Rock N’ Roll Hall Of Fame inductee has been playing a longstanding residency at the prestigious Madison Square Garden venue in New York City.
Kicking off in January 2014, he began Madison Square Garden’s first-ever music franchise, which continues to this day, performing one show at The Garden each month. However, it was recently revealed that the record-breaking residency will come to an end in summer 2024, a little over 10 years after it first began.
The final show, which will be held on July 25, 2024, will mark Joel’s 150th show at the location, and all of his performances have sold out at the venue.
In the run-up to the final date at the venue next summer, the 74-year-old will also be embarking upon his previously announced run of dates. The last stop for this year will be held on December 19, and the 2024 tour dates take place on January 11, February 9, March 28, April 26, May 9 and June 6th.
His tour schedule also features a variety of co-headlining shows, which will see the singer-songwriter take to the stage with other rock royalty including Stevie Nicks and Sting. His last show of 2023 will be at a New Year’s Eve event on Long Island.
In other Billy Joel news, earlier this year the songwriting legend responded to Fall Out Boy‘s updated cover of his song ‘We Didn’t Start The Fire’.
He also caught fans off guard when he brought out Joe Jonas as a surprise guest during his recent Hyde Park show, with the pair singing Joel’s hit ‘Uptown Girl’ together during the show’s encore.
