Billy Joel Poised to Tie His Own Madison Square Garden Record

By Andrea Dresdale

Credit: Myrna SuarezBack in 2006, Billy Joel set a record by selling out 12 consecutive shows at New York’s Madison Square Garden; he was the first solo artist to do so on a single tour. Now, the Piano Man is poised to tie his own record.

Billy has just announced that he’s added a 12th show to his current residency at the legendary New York City venue. The previous 11 shows he’s put on sale have all sold out. This 12th show will take place Thursday, December 18, and tickets go on sale Friday, February 28 at 10 a.m.

When he first announced his residency at the Garden — the venue calls it a “music franchise — Billy said he’d continue to play one show a month there “as long as there is interest.” The residency began on January 27; his next show is scheduled for March 21. In between, he’s been performing select dates around the country, and he’ll continue to do so, in arenas and stadiums, throughout the year.

Watch Sting Perform Songs from His New Musical "The Last Ship" Live on Stage

By Andrea Dresdale

Photo: Frank OckenfelsThe Last Ship, Sting‘s first attempt at a musical, will hit Broadway on October 26, but you can get a preview Friday night when he appears in a special edition of the PBS series Great Performances that features him performing the songs at an intimate New York club. The program premieres at 9 p.m. ET on select stations; check your local listings.

Sting taped the concert on October 2, 2013, his 62nd birthday, at the Public Theater in New York City. Speaking to reporters about the PBS special not long ago, the former Police frontman explained that he wanted to perform the Last Ship songs on stage himself because he wasn’t quite ready emotionally to turn them over to the cast of the musical.

“I imagine that I’m going to have a kind of postpartum depression, handing these songs completely over to actors, which is why it was important for me to sing these songs in the show,” he said. “So, I basically played all the characters, apart from one or two and, you know, claimed ownership of them. So now I can happily …read more

Paul Simon to Perform at National Baseball Hall of Fame's 75th Anniversary Concert

By Andrea Dresdale

PaulSimon.comAs part of Simon & Garfunkel, Paul Simon once sang “Where have you gone/Joe DiMaggio?” He’ll be communing with the late, great ball player’s spirit on August 2, when he travels to Cooperstown, New York to play at a concert celebrating the National Baseball Hall of Fame & Museum’s 75th Anniversary.

At the concert, which will pay tribute to baseball through music, film and video, Simon is scheduled to perform three songs. No doubt one of them will be “Mrs. Robinson,” the song that contains that famous Joe DiMaggio line; back in 2006, he donated a copy of the song to the Hall of Fame’s library.

Others on the bill for the concerts include musician and former New York Yankee Bernie Williams, as well as the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra. More stars will be announced in the coming weeks.

Simon is currently on tour with Sting; the two musicians will wrap up their joint trek March 16 in Orlando.
