Billy Joel’s Madison Square Garden Residency Will Hit 36 Months

-

In July last year, Billy Joel set the record for the most shows by a single artist at New York’s Madison Square Garden with his 64th performance.

This coming December 17th, the singer’s total will hit a staggering 81 when he once again takes the stage for his monthly residency at the venue. That will give the entertainer 36 straight months at MSG.bj sq

Joel has proven himself to be one of the biggest entertainers of all-time with the long running series, one that he said he would continue as long as there was a demand for tickets. Every show still sells out so it looks like he won’t be quitting anytime soon.

According to Boxscore through 26 monthly shows, Joel has grossed $54,514,204 with 485,651 tickets sold reports Billboard. That number will go up to over 700,000 tickets sold by year’s end.

What is even more amazing about the series is that Joel rests solely on decades old material. It has been over two decades since he released an album of new pop material (River of Dreams in 1993) with his only output being the 2001 classical album Fantasies & Delusions.

Tickets for the December 17 show went on sale Monday March 21 for Citi cardholders and will be available for the general public on Friday, March 25.
