Renovated Nassau Coliseum honors Billy Joel with new banner

Billy Joel once again reigns over NYCB Live's Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum after a banner bearing his name was raised to the rafters on Monday night, April 3, 2017. The new banner bears the number 33 -- the number of concerts Joel will have performed in the arena following his show Wednesday night, the first since the arena's $165 million renovation.
