Billy Joel has added another show as part of his record-breaking residency at Madison Square Garden in New York City on Monday, December 19th. The December show will mark Joel’s 86th monthly and 132nd lifetime show at The World’s Most Famous Arena.

Tickets will be available for purchase by the general public beginning at 10 am ET on Friday, August 12th via Ticketmaster.

Tickets will also be available at the Madison Square Garden box office on Saturday, August 13. Prices range from $69.50 to $165.50. The concert, part of the Montefiore Concert Series, is being promoted by MSG Entertainment in association with AEG Presents and Q104.3 as a media partner.

In December 2013, Billy Joel was named Madison Square Garden’s first-ever music franchise, joining the ranks of the storied venue’s other original franchises – the New York Knicks and New York Rangers. The record-breaking residency began in January 2014 with Joel playing one show every month at The Garden, “as long as the demand continues,” says Joel.

In November, Joel will headline night one of the two-night ATLive Powered by Ticketmaster on Friday, November 11th at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. Friday’s lineup also includes Lionel Richie and Sheryl Crow while Chris Stapleton will headline country night on Saturday, November 12th with performances by Miranda Lambert and Dwight Yoakam.

This December, Joel will also head Down Under for his first concert in Melbourne, Australia in 14 years. Joel’s exclusive One Night Only In Australia concert at Melbourne’s iconic MCG will be held December 10th and has sold out 71,000 tickets.

In celebration of 50 years of Billy Joel, one of the most iconic concert films of all time, Live At Yankee Stadium, is coming to cinemas for a special two-night global fan event on October 5th and 9th. Shot live on 16mm color film on June 22 and 23, 1990, at the iconic Bronx stadium, the original concert has been re-edited in stunning 4K with Dolby ATMOS audio and newly mixed from the original multi-track tapes by Jay Vicari and overseen by Joel’s long time sound engineer Brian Ruggle.
