BIG Concerts, 94.7 Highveld Stereo and Kfm 94.5 are delighted to announce that one of the world’s greatest entertainers, Billy Joel, will be bringing his critically acclaimed World Tour to SA this October. Beginning in Johannesburg’s Coca-Cola Dome on the 26th of October, the tour will see Billy Joel and his eight-piece band (including a four-piece horn section) move on to Cape Town’s Bellville Velodrome on the 1st of November.
A 6-time Grammy award winner, Billy Joel has sold in excess of 100 million records worldwide and was the first artist to have five albums past the seven million mark. Having not performed in SA before, Billy Joel is heading south to perform hits from his massive repertoire, including ‘River of Dreams’, ‘We Didn’t Start the Fire’, ‘New York State of Mind’, ‘Just the Way You Are’, ‘It’s Still Rock n’ Roll To Me’, ‘Piano Man’, ‘Tell Her About It’, ‘Uptown Girl’ and countless others. He will be accompanied onstage by his longtime backing band.
The current Billy Joel tour recently set a world record for selling out New York’s Madison Square Gardens for twelve consecutive nights, beating Bruce Springsteen’s previously held record of 10 nights.
Tickets are priced from R250.00 (excluding booking fees), and are available from Computicket
