Billy Joel confirms NYE show in Brooklyn
Billy Joel is back in a "New York State of Mind." Joel has confirmed a New Year's Eve show at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, his first official New York City date since 2008.
Joel will ring in 2014 alongside opener Ben Folds Five. Tickets go on sale Nov. 9.
At Joel's last New York City concert in 2008, he closed down Shea Stadium. In 2010, the native New Yorker took a break from touring to recover from hip replacement surgery. He's played sporadically since, appearing at the 12/12/12 Hurricane Sandy relief show at Madison Square Garden and, more recently, the Soundwave Festival in Australia and Jazz Fest in New Orleans.
Joel holds the record for most-consecutive sold-out concerts at Madison Square Garden, so expect the Barclays show to sell out fast.
