Billy Joel Announces 2017 Stadium Dates

Subscribe to Ultimate Classic Rock on

Once again, Billy Joel will play select dates in baseball stadiums across the U.S. Today, he announced six shows that will take place during the spring and summer.

The first show will take place on April 28 at SunTrust Park in Cumberland, Ga., just outside Atlanta. This will be the first concert at the new home of the Atlanta Braves, which will have opened up earlier that month. You can see the trailer for the date above. Joel will also be performing in two other stadiums for the first time, at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles (May 13) and Cleveland’s Progressive Field (July 14). After that it will be Chicago’s Wrigley Field (Aug. 11), Boston’s Fenway Park (Aug. 30) and Philadelphia’s Citizens Bank Park (Sept. 9). Joel has played those venues in each of the last three years.

His relationship with Wrigley and Fenway is such that they will honor him during the baseball season. The Chicago Cubs will have a Billy Joel Day at a as-yet unknown date in the spring. The Boston Red Sox will celebrate Billy Joel Night during their Aug. 1 game against the Cleveland Indians. Philadelphia is taking it one step further, raising a banner in recognition of his six concerts at the stadium, and Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney will proclaim Sept. 9 to be Billy Joel Day throughout the city.

Tickets for all shows go on sale Friday, Jan. 13 at 10AM local time, with a pre-sale for American Express cardholders beginning Jan. 9 at 10AM local time. You can get full details on these shows, and all of Joel’s upcoming concerts, at his website.
