Statement from Billy Joel spokesperson:
“Due to endoscopic sinus surgery, Billy Joel will reschedule his upcoming September 30th concert at Madison Square Garden to November 21, 2016. The procedure will require him to rest his voice and avoid any strenuous activity. With several weeks of rest, Billy is expected to make a full recovery.”
All tickets purchased for the September 30 concert will be honored on November 21. For more information please visit www.thegarden.com. Joel’s Madison Square Garden residency will resume as scheduled on October 28, 2016.
In December 2013, Billy Joel became the first-ever music franchise of The World’s Most Famous Arena, joining the ranks of The Garden’s other original franchises – the New York Knicks, Rangers and Liberty. Since January 2014, Joel has played one show per month at The Garden as part of the Time Warner Cable Concert Series. This hugely successful residency has led to 36 sold out shows through December 2016. Joel currently holds both of The Garden’s concert-related performance records – for “Longest Run of Any Artist,” which he continues to break each month during his residency, and for “Most Number of Performances By Any Artist.”
