Biggest yet: Billy Joel’s coming to JPJ
According to an email sent out to customers of the John Paul Jones Arena shortly after 10pm Sunday, Joel will perform Friday, February 23, and tickets go on sale December 1.
How big is Joel? The Recording Industry Association of America estimates that he's sold over 100 million records.
Formerly married to supermodel Christie Brinkley, Joel has another twenty-something as his current bride. And although he pronounced himself retired from music making in the mid-1990s, his occasional tours often produce phenomenal results, such as appearing before nearly half a million people in Rome on July 31 of this year.
