BILLY JOEL FENWAY PARK – AUGUST 18 SOLD OUT
Boston, MA (January 22, 2016) – Live Nation and the Boston Red Sox are proud to announce that Billy Joel’s milestone “triple play” performance at Fenway Park has sold out, marking a third consecutive sellout for the first artist to play three consecutive years at the historic ballpark.
“Billy Joel’s popularity is undeniable so it was no surprise to learn that his third show in as many years at Fenway Park sold out so quickly,” said Red Sox President Sam Kennedy. “We look forward to hosting the Piano Man this summer as he plays to a full house of New England fans.”
In December 2013, Billy Joel became Madison Square Garden’s first-ever music franchise, joining the ranks of the storied venue’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 unprecedented and wildly successful residency has led to 30 sold-out shows through June 2016. Having sold 150 million records over the past quarter century, Billy Joel ranks as one of most popular recording artists and respected entertainers in history. The singer/songwriter/composer is the sixth best- selling recording artist of all time, the third best-selling solo artist and is one of the highest grossing touring artists in the world. Joel is also one of the biggest live performing artists in the world and his concerts continue to break records in both arenas and baseball stadiums. In November 2014, Billy Joel received both The Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song which honors living musical artists’ lifetime achievement in promoting the genre of song as a vehicle of cultural understanding; entertaining and informing audiences; and inspiring new generations, and the once-in-a-century ASCAP Centennial Award, which is presented to American music icons in recognition of their incomparable accomplishments in their respective music genres and beyond.
