Joel’s swing through the South starts February 7 in Jacksonville, Fla. So far, there are nine concerts on the itinerary. It looks like he’s going to do a high-profile tour warm-up by singing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl in Miami on February 4.

The new dates are just another leg of a phenomenal tour for Joel. In January of this year, he launched a worldwide tour through North America, Europe, South Africa, Australia and Japan.

The trek broke house records along the way, including a record 22nd lifetime appearances at the Hartford (Conn.) Civic Center and a full 12 nights at New York City’s Madison Square Garden Arena. A 32-track live album was compiled from the NYC shows and released in June as 12 Gardens: Live.

Prior to this year’s tour, Joel had not toured as a solo act since 1999, focusing instead on a number of co-headlining collaborative outings with Elton John.
