Billy Joel Booking a World Tour?
So far there’s only one show on the books, but it looks as though Billy Joel will be heading back on the road. Following his two April festival appearances at Australia’s Stone Music Festival and the New Orleans Jazz Fest, the “Piano Man” has booked a single show for November 1st in Dublin, Ireland at the O2 Dublin. As of now no other concerts have been announced, but it seems unlikely that Billy would travel for only one overseas arena show, as opposed to his one-off festival gigs, which had not only a tremendous budget but numerous acts. Pollstar reported that the show marks his first Dublin gig in seven years and his first ever indoor show in Ireland.
Earlier this year, Billy had stated that he’s considering performing full-album shows in select U.S. cities, name-checking 1982′s The Nylon Curtain as one of the albums he most wants to play live.
