Billy Joel to set Madison Square Garden record
NEW YORK (AP) -- Billy Joel will set a record for the most performances by any artist at Madison Square Garden with his upcoming 65th show scheduled for this summer.
The 65-year-old piano man will surpass the record set by his former tour mate Elton John with a show on July 1, which will be part of his residency at the New York venue. Tickets for the record-breaking show, as well as his performances scheduled in May and June, will go on sale to the general public on Saturday.
The Grammy-winning artist was announced last year as the first-ever music franchise of the Garden. The July 1 show will be the 19th performance as a part of the residency, which has included monthly concerts from the singer songwriter throughout 2014.
