Billy Joel
First UK Tour In Seven Years Announced

BILLY JOEL will return to the UK for the first time in seven years to perform three dates in October and November.  Billy Joel will play two arena dates in Manchester and Birmingham plus a very special show at London’s Hammersmith Apollo.

Having sold more than 150 million albums worldwide, Billy Joel is one of the most popular and well-respected entertainers in the world. The six-time Grammy Award Winner has also earned numerous awards and honours including induction into The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, The Songwriters Hall of Fame, The Tony Award, The Billboard Century Award, and the RIAA Diamond Award.  

Recently, the legendary composer was honoured by Steinway & Sons with a painted portrait that hangs in Steinway Hall in New York City, the first non-classical pianist to be immortalized in the collection. As a humanitarian, Billy Joel was honoured as the MusiCares Person of the Year and has launched an educational initiative providing endowments and musical scholarships to a variety of universities and music schools.

Not only are these his first UK shows in seven years, his Hammersmith Apollo date will be the first time Billy Joel has performed in an intimate theatre setting since 1977.
