BackgroundEdit

After completing the 2010 Face to Face Tour with Elton John, Joel left the stage and did not return until 2013. He played several concerts, including Sydney in Australia[8] as well as four concerts in the United Kingdom.[9]

The tour began in Sunrise, Florida, with two concerts at the BB&T Center in January 2014.[10]

Madison Square GardenEdit

The tour created a concert residency at the New York City venue Madison Square Garden. Joel has played one show a month at Madison Square Garden as long as there is a demand for tickets. His first show at the Garden was on January 27, 2014. On January 9, 2015, Joel broke his own record from 2006 for the most consecutive sold out shows at the arena. It was his thirteenth consecutive show. On July 1, 2015, Billy Joel set the record for the most shows at the Garden by a single artist. It was his 65th show. The record was previously held by Elton John and the Grateful Dead.[11][12]

Nassau Veterans Memorial ColiseumEdit

Joel performed the last concert at Long Island's Nassau Coliseum on August 4, 2015 prior to the venue's extensive renovation.[13][14] The venue re-opened its doors on April 5, 2017, with Joel being the arena's first post-renovation event.[15]
