Howard Stern will interview Billy Joel in a town-hall styled meeting, broadcast live on SiriusXM on April 28, which will include special guests and performances just days before Joel turns 65.

“The 2010 interview I did with Billy Joel was one of my favorites of my career,” Stern said in a statement. “Now, this special hits a whole new level, with surprise guests whose lives have been changed by Billy, from the unknown to the famous, giving Billy the tribute, and fans the treat, that they deserve.”

The “Town Hall” will air live from a secret location around midday on Howard 100 (Ch. 100) and the Billy Joel Channel (Ch. 4).

“Combining Howard Stern’s amazing interviewing skills and Billy Joel’s musical mastery into one ‘Town Hall’ special makes this the can’t-miss event of the season,” said Scott Greenstein, SiriusXM’s president and chief content officer. “Who knows what to expect when The Piano Man and The King of All Media sit down together?”
