Any uptown girl and innocent man can spend Valentine's Day together with Billy Joel, who announced his 88th monthly show in his Madison Square Garden residency.
General-public tickets for his Feb. 14 concert go on sale Oct. 14 at 10 a.m. at Ticketmaster.com. This will be the Hicksville-raised Rock & Roll Hall of Famer's 134th lifetime show at the storied arena. Joel, who began his residency on Jan. 27, 2014, has performed monthly except for a long pause during the early phase of the COVID-19 pandemic. His Oct. 9, Nov. 23 and Dec. 19 Garden concerts are sold out, according to his website, while tickets remain for Jan. 13.
The 73-year-old Joel has earned five Grammy Awards plus a Grammy Legend Award, a Kennedy Center Honor and the Library of Congress' Gershwin Prize for Popular Song, and has been inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Long Island Music Hall of Fame.
