“We are proud that Billy has chosen to make Brooklyn his first arena concert in New York City since 2006,” said Brett Yormark, CEO of Barclays Center. “When we opened Barclays Center 13 months ago, Billy was one of the must-have artists for our building and we are thrilled that he will be ringing in the New Year on Brooklyn’s biggest stage. New York City born and Long Island raised, Billy is an iconic New Yorker and we are looking forward to a memorable evening.”

The concert will open with Ben Folds Five at 9:30 pm, followed by Joel.

Earlier this month, Joel thrilled the crowd as he performed is first Long Island concert in 11 years. He also paid tribute to Long Island Cares, the Happauge-based charity founded by Harry Chapin that Joel chose to receive proceeds from the sold-out show. This October, Joel returned to Europe for the first time in seven years to perform three shows in the UK and his first-ever indoor concert in Ireland, at the O2 in Dublin. In December, Billy Joel will receive The Kennedy Center Honor, one of the United States’ top cultural awards.
