The Return Of Billy Joel
Dates are beginning to trickle in for Billy Joel‘s return to the road. It looks like the outing will start in January and run well into the spring months. A formal announcement of the arena tour is expected in the next day or so.
This will mark the Piano Man’s first solo headlining tour since his 1998-99 run which grossed $47.1 million over 73 shows. His subsequent tours with Elton John were even more lucrative and made the two pop kings the highest-grossing touring duo ever.
The new tour comes on the heals of the November 22 release of a Joel box set, curated by the artist himself. The four-CD / one-DVD package includes 23 unreleased tracks and loads of bonuses.
