Billy Joel to play Madison Square Garden Once a Month... forever?

by Mark Cartwright

Saying that playing Madison Square Garden is an experience that never gets old, Billy Joel has announced that he will play the venue once a month for as long as there is a demand.  This is great news for Billy Joel fans, as he has steered away from touring in recent years.  Does this mark a change for entertainment at Madison Square Garden?  Are they going to start doing residencies, such as Elton John and Rod Stewart do in Las Vegas at the Colosseum at Caesar's Palace?  I don't know.  But I do know that any trip that I plan to take to New York City will surely include tickets to see Billy Joel.  I have seen Billy in concert before and came away more than impressed with the overall sound and energy of the show.  To see him perform at Madison Square Garden would be one for the bucket list.
