Instagram photos of Billy Joel at MSG

Billy Joel broke records at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday, July 1, 2015, with his 65th show at the Manhattan venue. He surpassed Elton John, who previously held the record for the most performances by any artist at MSG, with 64.

July 1 also marked the 19th show in Joel's MSG residency, a record for most consecutive performances there. As the first-ever artist-in-residence at a major arena, the Piano Man began his stint Jan. 27, 2014 after a historic agreement that has him playing the Garden monthly for as long as fans want him.
