American singer Billy Joel Piano Man will be in Australia for one night only

The Victorian government’s Always Live drive has announced its most recent draft: New York City legend Billy Joel. Piano Man will be in Australia for one night only, performing at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Saturday, 10th December.

Legendary musician Billy Joel is set to play out an exceptional concert in Australia not long from now. For one evening – and one night in particular – iconic American musician Billy Joel is going Down Under for what will undoubtedly be one amazing summer stadium show.

On Saturday, December 10, the Piano Man himself will illuminate Melbourne’s MCG in his most memorable live execution in the city in 14 years.

In a joint effort with Frontier Touring, the Victorian Government and ALWAYS LIVE, the 73-year-old ‘Piano Man’ singer was really glad to announce he was descending Under to play out a one-night-just gig at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground on December 10 – and he was unable to be more energized.

The 73-year-old Joel has been no more bizarre to Australian shores over his five-decade career – his most memorable visit down under was during the 1970s. Nonetheless, it has been almost a decade since Joel’s latest Australian visit, to the Stone Music Festival in April 2013.

The singer – who has beaten out everyone else with hits, for example, ‘Always a Woman’, ‘We Didn’t Start the Fire’ and ‘Uptown Girl’ – has not played in Melbourne in 14 years and is counting during the time until he returns.

Billy Joel returns after the Longest Time

Billy Joel as of late celebrated the 50th anniversary of his debut album, Cold Spring Harbor (1971). His characterizing release, Piano Man, turned out in 1973. It has been more than 20 years since Joel released any new material, yet his touring schedule has remained moderately consistent.

His back catalog keeps on selling in enormous amounts. By certain measurements, Billy Joel positions as the 6th best-selling recording artist ever and the third best-selling solo artist. He’s won six Grammy awards and in 1999 was drafted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame.

Continuously LIVE Chair and Mushroom Group CEO Matt Gudinski – who assumed control following the demise of his father Michael Gudinski last year – said they were excited to invite Billy Joel to Melbourne.

Billy Joel is apparently perhaps of the most perceived face and voices in music. He has sold in excess of 150 million records around the world, making him the 6th best-selling recording artist ever, and the third best-selling solo artist. Furthermore, no wonder – the iconic musician holds six Grammy Awards to his name from a whopping 23 nominations.

With respect to impending execution at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, Billy Joel said, “It’s been a really long time since I’ve been [to Australia]. I’m really looking forward to coming and I’m bringing the whole family and we’re going to enjoy it. I’ll see you there.” Joel last performed in Melbourne as part of his 2008 world tour.

Liable for such all-time hits as Uptown Girl and Only the Good Die Young, and the sad banger to end every sad banger – Vienna – this is one worth going for in the event that you’re not a Victorian.

The concert is being given in partnership with Always Live, a statewide celebration of live music upheld by the Victorian Government.

Tickets go on sale on Monday, 4 July at 10 am AEST through Frontier Touring. Frontier Members can get to the Frontier pre-sale, which begins at 11 am AEST on Thursday, 30th June. Telstra Members get selective admittance to the Telstra Plus Member pre-sale, which begins at 10 am AEST on Monday, 27th June.
