Billy Joel announces single Australian concert

Event is Dec 10th in Melbourne

Frontier Touring, the Victorian Government and Always Live are thrilled to announce that Billy Joel will perform one night only in Australia on Saturday, December 10th, with a history-making performance at the iconic stadium Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).

An artist who requires little introduction, Billy Joel is one of the biggest concert draws in the world. Having sold over 150 million records and scoring six GRAMMY wins from 23 nominations, Joel ranks as one of the most popular and respected entertainers in history – the sixth best-selling recording artist of all time, and the third best-selling solo artist. Tickets to this exclusive concert – Joel’s first live performance in Melbourne in 14 years – will go on sale Monday, July 4th at 10 am AEST via Frontier Touring. Frontier Members can access the Frontier pre-sale, which starts Thursday, June 30th at 11 am AEST.

Telstra Members can also get exclusive access to the Telstra Plus Member pre-sale, which starts on Monday, June 27th at 10 am AEST.

“I’m happy to announce that I’m finally coming to Australia to do one exclusive show at the Melbourne Cricket Ground as part of Always Live,” Joel shares in a video message that can be viewed below. “It’s been a really long time since I’ve been there, 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.”

As the first-ever music franchise at New York City’s Madison Square Garden, Joel began his record-breaking residency at the storied arena back in January 2014, performing one show every month “as long as the demand continues”. Incredibly, November 2022 will see Joel performing his 85th monthly and 130th show at The Garden, before he heads down to Melbourne for the one-off AU show.
