Few singers have had the type of longevity that Billy Joel has had. Releasing his debut solo album in 1971, Billy, 74, became a sensation with his 1973 record Piano Man, which has become his signature song and his nickname. The singer has had many more hits throughout his career, including tunes like “Just the Way You Are”, “Movin’ Out”, and “Only the Good Die Young.” Besides having popular songs and albums, Billy has become renowned for his live shows, and he continues to be immensely popular even five decades into his career.
Some of Billy’s best and most famous concerts have taken place at his home state’s historic venue Madison Square Garden in New York City. He holds the title of artist who has played the arena the most times, and in recent years, he took up an indefinite residency at The Garden in 2014. After a decade, the run will come to an end in 2024. With his series of shows at MSG ending, fans are left wondering what that means for the Piano Man. While it’s certainly the end of an era, it doesn’t seem like Billy is planning on retiring. He just released his first new song in 17 years “Turn the Lights Back On” on February 1, and he’s slated to perform at the 2024 Grammy Awards on Sunday, February 4, 2024.
