Jan. 21, 2015 (San Francisco, CA) – The wait is over. Another Planet Entertainment and Giants Enterprises are proud to announce that the legendary musician Billy Joel is back in San Francisco, performing live in concert at AT&T Park on Saturday, September 5th, 2015. While Billy Joel is currently playing an unprecedented run of 23 consecutive sold out concert dates at New York’s Madison Square Garden, Bay Area fans are in for a special treat – this is the only date Billy Joel will perform in the state of California this entire year.
“We are thrilled to host Billy Joel at AT&T Park for the first time in his illustrious career,” said Giants President and CEO, Larry Baer. “It’s hard to believe it’s been over four decades since Billy last played in the city of San Francisco, but I’m confident The City will welcome him with open arms. Billy’s star power combined with our world-class venue will make for an unforgettable show.”
