Billy Joel is bringing his incredible talent to Winston Salem

Piano Man is back at it again!

Calling all piano fans! We have a tour that you are not going to be able to resist! Billy Joel, a.k.a. The Piano Man, is hitting the road this summer to show off his impeccable talent on the piano, with several stops in and around New York state followed by a dip down south to Pennsylvania and North Carolina.

For those of you who don’t know who the Piano Man is let me give you a quick run down. William Martin Joel, born on May 9th, in the Bronx New York, and raised in Long Island, Joel lets his New York roots shine in several of his songs such as “Uptown Girl”. In 1988 Joel lent his unmistakable New York Accent to Disney for the company’s 27th animated film Oliver and Company in which he voiced Dodger, the lovable canine who helps out a stray kitten. Joel also performed the track “Why Should I Worry”.

Since the start of his musical career in 1971, Joel has released five live, fifteen compilation, and thirteen studio albums. The latest being Fantasies and Delusions, which was released in 2001. The album consists of Joel and his long time friend British-Korean pianist Richard Hyung-ki.  

Three years later on September 20th, 2004, Joel was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Along with his Hollywood Star, Joel has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by Ray Charles, one of his many musical influences. His awards don’t stop there though. Joel also received his Kennedy Center Honors.

Joel will be stopping by Winston Salem, North Carolina on October 13th, 2018 to play at BB&T Field, which is located minutes away from downtown Winston Salem. Tickets for the event are in high demand are going fast! The NC Date is one of the remaining fourteen shows on this tour so make sure you catch the miraculous Piano Man while you can!
