Live Nation has announced today that Billy Joel will perform at Air Canada Centre on March 9, 2014. The performance marks Billy Joel’s first solo headlining appearance at Air Canada Centre since 2007.
“We are thrilled Billy Joel has chosen Air Canada Centre on this tour. Our fans are in for a special night of music when this music icon makes his return to Toronto on March 9,” said Wayne Zronik, Vice President, Live Entertainment at Maple Leafs Sports & Entertainment.
Billy Joel is one of the highest grossing touring artists in the world. Having sold over 150 million albums globally, his music has remained among the most popular in the world. The singer/songwriter/composer is the sixth best-selling recording artist of all time and the third best-selling solo artist.
Recently, Joel was honored by Steinway & Sons with a painted portrait that hangs in Steinway Hall in Manhattan, the first non-classical pianist to be immortalized in the collection. He played to more than 110,000 fans when he performed the final concerts at Shea Stadium, featured in the 2010 documentary film “The Last Play At Shea.” Last month, Joel received The Kennedy Center Honor, one of the United States' top cultural awards.
Billy Joel has received six GRAMMY® Awards, including the prestigious Grammy Legend Award. He has been inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and has received numerous industry awards. His music has also served as the inspiration and score for the hit Tony Award-winning Broadway play “Movin’ Out.”
