Billy Joel is one of the most successful recording artists of all time. For 50 years, the Bronx-born musician has been playing piano, singing and composing hit music, starting with Cold Spring Harbor in 1971 and ending with Fantasies & Delusions in 2001. (I know, I know, can we get a new album already?)

Putting aside his obvious contributions to musical history, Joel might also be the first artist to ever commit to a residency that lasts… forever. On December 3, 2013, it was announced that he would perform at New York City’s Madison Square Garden once a month indefinitely. Which is why you’re here. Hopefully you’re lucky enough to have tickets to the main event, and want to know which songs to brush up on. Will there be obscurities, covers, b-sides? Well, since debuting on January 27, 2014, Joel has been delivering nothing but the hits for a wide-eyed, awe-struck NYC crowds. However, if you are still looking for tickets to Billy Joel at MSG, you can head here. Enjoy!

Billy Joel Madison Square Garden Setlist

Folks headed to see the Piano Man at MSG have come to expect all the best songs. Spanning his half-century-long discography, classics like “Piano Man,” “Movin’ Out,” “Pressure,” “Scenes from an Italian Restaurant” and “Only the Good Die Young” are setlist staples. Plus, Joel frequently allows the audience to vote on what song they want to hear, so be sure to bring your loudest screaming voice!
