Rock N Roll History December 13
The Piano Man does it again! December 13, 2015 Madison Square Garden in New York announced that Billy Joel had already sold out his June 17, 2016 show. A sell out this far in advance doesn't surprise me. I've seen Billy in concert a few times and his show is nothing short of fantastic. Read more about Joel below.
William Martin Joel was born May 9, 1949 in, where else, The Bronx, New York. Joel released his first album "Cold Spring Harbor" in 1971, and achieved his first hit in 1973 with "Piano Man". Since that time, he has become the sixth best-selling recording artist and the third best-selling solo artist in the United States. In 1999, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Joel has been married four times, first to Elizabeth Weber Small, followed by Christie Brinkley, Katie Lee and Alexis Roderick. Joel and Brinkley have a daughter, Alexa Ray. Daughter, Della Rose, was born in 2015 to Joel and his wife Alexis Roderick. As a side note, if you want to see Joel in concert next year at Madison Square Garden, get your tickets now. He will be performing at MSG February 22 and March 3, 2017.
