The Piano Man is coming back to tickle the ivories at Citizens Bank Park for the fourth year in a row. It will be the sixth time he's played at the home of the Phillies.
He'll be here on Sept. 9, officials announced today in South Philly.
“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.”
The Phillies also raised a banner in tribute to Joel’s many performances at Citizens Bank Park.
On Friday, Jan. 13, starting at 10 a.m., the general public can purchase tickets for the concert through Ticketmaster or by calling (800) 745-3000. Those who are American Express cardmembers can start purchasing presale tickets on Monday, Jan. 9, at 10 a.m.
