Billy Joel is coming back to Indiana! The legendary performer will play Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis on Friday, November 3, 2017. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, February 24 at 9 a.m.
He hasn’t played a solo show in Indianapolis since 1999, when the new arena was still called Conseco Fieldhouse. He did come back to Indianapolis a couple of times to perform with Elton John in 2003 and 2009.
During his five-decade career, Joel is one of rock ’n rolls best, performing his unrivaled catalog of songs that have made up the soundtrack of many lives. Joel ranks as one of the most popular recording artists and admired entertainers in history, with 150 million records sold over the past quarter century. The singer/songwriter/composer is the third best-selling solo artist and one of the highest grossing touring artists in the world.
In December 2013, Billy Joel became Madison Square Garden’s first-ever music franchise, joining the ranks of the storied venue’s other original franchises – the New York Knicks, Rangers and Liberty. Since January 2014, Joel has played one show per month at The Garden as part of the Time Warner Cable Concert Series. This unprecedented and wildly successful residency has led to 36 sold-out shows through December 2016.
Joel has also performed alongside other music greats at two of Madison Square Garden’s most extraordinary benefit concerts – “12-12-12, The Concert For Sandy Relief,” which raised awareness and money for those affected by Hurricane Sandy and “The Concert for New York City,” which was held to help aid 9/11 victims and heroes. Billy Joel received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles, adding another milestone to his brilliant career.
