Billy Joel Tour

After word came down about a single Billy Joel tour date this January in Florida, speculation immediately started about a pending announcement of one of his impressive New Year’s Eve shows. We didn’t have to wait long; details about a Billy Joel concert at Barclays Center in New York dropped today. Just as his 1999 Millenium concert in Madison Square Garden went down as an epic event for fans gained during his then 25-year career, this Billy Joel New Year’s Eve tour date in New York City stands to be a fitting tribute to his now 40-year portfolio of hit songs.

Joining in to support this year’s Billy Joel concert on New Year’s Eve will be Ben Folds Five, scheduled to hit the stage at 9:30p before the Piano Man himself sits down to ring in the new year. While it’s easy to harken back to the Billy Joel New Year’s Eve show in 1999, the show itself is a special occasion in Joel’s recent history. The Billy Joel concert at Barclays Center will be his first arena show in New York since 2006 and his first appearance of any kind since 2008. With Brooklyn’s fancy year-old venue available, it gives this Long Island native a chance to wow a huge crowd and celebrate a new year on his home soil. Ticket holders for this unique & spectacular Billy Joel tour date in Brooklyn are guaranteed to kiss 2013 good-bye in style!

Past Billy Joel New Year’s Eve Setlist

The Billy Joel New Year’s Eve concert in New York City’s Madison Square Garden back in 1999 was titled “Millenium,” and it was quite the set. Counting the encore, Joel performed three dozen songs for over two hours. He also had the show recorded and distributed as his third live album. Here’s hoping Billy Joel’s 2013 New Year’s Eve tour date at Barclays Center is just as special for ticket holders!
