NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess) — Madison Square Garden Entertainment announced that the piano man Billy Joel has added a 13th show to his Madison Square Garden Time Warner Cable Concert Series.
Set for January 9, 2015, the show will break a record (held coincidentally, by Joel himself) by selling out more than 12 consecutive shows in a single run, which he set in 2006. The January 9th date will also mark Joel's 59th show at MSG, inching closer to the record for the record currently held by Elton John for “most number of performances by any artist” at 64 performances.
In December 2013, Madison Square Garden announced Billy Joel as the first-ever music 'franchise' at MSG, joining the ranks of The Garden’s other original franchises – including the New York Knicks, Rangers and Liberty.
To celebrate the franchise, MSG Network will debut “Billy Joel Home at The Garden” – a half-hour special capturing the first year of Joel’s groundbreaking franchise run at Madison Square Garden with behind-the-scenes footage, interviews, and unforgettable moments from his performances – on Monday, November 10 at 11:00 p.m. immediately following the Knicks home game against the Atlanta Hawks. “Billy Joel Home at The Garden” will also air on Tuesday, November 11 at 10:30 p.m. following the Rangers home game against the Pittsburgh Penguins. – Staff Writers
