Billy Joel played his last show on US soil before heading down under for the two shows in Auckland and Melbourne in December.

Billy Joel will play one show in New Zealand in Auckland on 3 December 2022 and then one Australian show on 10 December in Melbourne.

His next American show is 19 December at Madison Square Garden in New York.
