Joel’s Madison Square Garden franchise run will resume as scheduled on May 5, 2023.

“Please note, the May 5 performance is subject to change if it conflicts with a playoff game”.

Billy Joel’s last show at Madison Square Garden was on 26 March 2023. He is signed to perform a concert of month for the rest of his life. At his most recent Madison Square Garden show he was joined on stage by Billy Gibbons from ZZ Top for the ZZ Top classics ‘Tush’ and ‘La Grange’.
