The Philadelphia Phillies' play-by-play announcer, Tom McCarthy, and Live Nation announced Thursday, that Billy Joel will return to perform at Citizens Bank Park on September 9, 2017. Joel will be the only artist ever to perform 4 consecutive years at the stadium.


“I’ve seen him nine times during my life, including the first time at the Spectrum, and if you have not seen a Billy Joel show, he is fantastic,” said Phillies play-by-play announcer Tom McCarthy.

City Representative Sheila Hess said the city will declare Sept. 9 “Billy Joel Day” in Philadelphia.

“We’re super excited to have Billy come back,” said Geoff Gordon, regional president of Live Nation.

“All his shows have been complete sell-outs, so we expect the same…get your tickets fast.”
