Billy Joel Shows No Signs of Stopping

At 70 years old, most of us will be hanging in the towel and settling into a life of relaxation. Not Billy Joel. The "Piano Man" has just completed his 66th consecutive sell out show at Madison Square Garden (July 2019) and doesn't appear to be stopping anytime soon. In addition to a handful of 2019 summer tour dates at various baseball stadiums, Billy will be playing one show per month at MSG for (at least) the rest of 2019.

Billy Joel was born in The Bronx, NY before growing up in Long Island, NY. Even after moving out to Los Angeles during the takeoff of his career, Joel still found his way back to NYC. He currently resides in Long Island, a mere 37 miles from Madison Square Garden. Since his MSG residency began back on Jan. 27, 2014, Billy has headlined a show every consequetive month. What is most incredible is despite playing so frequently at one of the largest venues in NYC, every single show is sold out. Part of what makes this residency so desirable is Billy's ability to make each show feel special and unique. During his residency, Billy Joel has brought out numerous special guests including Bruce Springsteen, Tony Bennett, and even Jimmy Fallon. He also flips between different tracks from his massive discography. Don't worry though, fans can still expect to hear classics such as Uptown Girl, Piano Man, and We Didn't Start the Fire night after night.

This summer, Billy Joel and his band will be playing 5 baseball stadiums between May 2019 and October 2019. The short tour begins in Philadelphia at Citzens Bank Park and concludes in Arlington at Globe Life Park. If Billy's 2018 summer concert tour was any indication of this 2019 tour, tickets will sell out fast. Luckily, in playing venues as big as baseball stadiums, fans are sure to find a variety of tickets available to fit most budgets.

Billy has recently began displaying the hashtag #billyjoelmsg100 at his Madison Square Garden residency shows. Some believe this is a tribute to the milestone reached in 2018 when Billy played his 100th show of all time at this historic venue. Other's speculate that Billy will continue this current residency until he reaches 100 consecutive sell-out shows. Reguardless, everyone should prioritize seeing one of Billy's legendary shows to witness one of the greatest artists of all time.

Tickets and Seating

Behind the Stage at Madison Square Garden

What's is it like to sit behind the stage for Billy Joel at Madison Square Garden? Are the tickets worth it? These are valid questions that we get a lot specific to Billy Joel's residency at Madison Square Garden. The short answer, is if the tickets are in your price range and you are looking to just go for the experience, then yes, the seats behind the stage will be just fine for you.

Behind the Stage at MSG
Sitting behind the stage leaves you without some elements of the show, but the view to Billy Joel is still clear.

One of the biggest concerns of fans is that they will not be able to see Billy Joel perform live. If this is your concern don't worry. Billy Joel and his piano are visible to all seats. There are no obstructions behind the stage and the video screens above are high enough to clear the view for all seats.

300 level behind the stage at MSG
Even the 300 Level Seats have a clear view to the stage.

One of the main reasons these tickets stick out is their lower price. There is a reason they are cheaper and that is because you don't get all the elements of the show. For one, above the stage are several video screens which display different video elements during the show. Sometimes it is the band members performing on stage, other times it is video clips and graphics. This content is only visible to those sitting in front of the stage. If this is something that matters to you, these seats are probably not the best seats for you.

There are some hidden benefits to siting behind the stage as well. For one, the lower price is something everyone can appreciate. Not only that but some of the lower level seats can get you much closer to Billy Joel on stage. Once you're that close, you won't even notice the lack of video screens or effects. It is one way to sit closer while sticking to a budget.
