And it’s not even his Birthday…Well actually, it is. Madison Square Garden has announced five Joel concerts for 2014, starting Jan. 27th. The venue previously put on sale four dates, Feb. 3, March 21, and April 18, to which they added one date at a press conference for May 9th, Joel’s 65th birthday.
The Garden also announced on Tuesday that Joel is their first ever musical franchise. That honor makes Joel the Garden’s fourth pillar, equal to its three sports teams: the Knicks, the Liberty, and the Rangers.
This Sunday, Billy Joel will receive a prestigious Kennedy Center Honor from President Obama in Washington.
