Billy Joel announces Penultimate 2014 MSG show

2/14/2014

Billy Joel has added the second to last show of the year as part of his open-ended residency at Madison Square Garden. Billy will perform during Thanksgiving week on Tuesday, November 25th, with tickets for that show and the just announced October 2nd concert going on sale to the general public beginning at 10 a.m. ET this morning (Friday, February 14th). Billy Joel has sold out all nine of the MSG shows already announced.

As anyone will tell you that's caught any of Billy Joel's recent shows -- both at the Garden or on the road -- the sheer amount of classic songs stacked against each other is simply staggering. Billy told us that it's only recently that popular music has shied away from being melodically-based: "Songwriting really owes a great debt to Schubert, because he developed the song form. And there's a direct line from Schubert to modern songwriters up until recently when the thread was broken. Nowadays, melody is no longer really important. Even people who are not rap recording artists -- even people who are singers, don't really sing melody anymore. People like Mariah Carey or Christina Aguilera -- you can't hear a melody. They're doing vocal acrobatics, but they're not really singing melody.”
