UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Billy Joel will perform at 8 p.m. Friday, Dec. 5, at the Bryce Jordan Center, Joel’s first solo headlining appearance at the arena since 1997.

“We could not be more thrilled to host Billy Joel in one of his few scheduled performances,” said Bob Howard, general manager of the Bryce Jordan Center. “Partners like Live Nation continue to bring our area world-class entertainment, and we look forward to an unforgettable evening with the music icon Billy Joel.”

Joel is one of the highest grossing touring artists in the world. Having sold more than 150 million albums globally, his music has remained among the most popular in the world. The singer/songwriter/composer is the sixth best-selling recording artist of all time and the third best-selling solo artist.

Recently, Joel was honored by Steinway & Sons with a painted portrait that hangs in Steinway Hall in Manhattan, the first non-classical pianist to be immortalized in the collection. He played to more than 110,000 fans when he performed the final concerts at Shea Stadium, which was featured in the 2010 documentary film "The Last Play At Shea.” This week, Joel will receive The Kennedy Center Honor, one of the United States' top cultural awards.

Billy Joel has received six Grammy Awards, including the prestigious Grammy Legend Award. He has been inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and has received numerous industry awards. His music has also served as the inspiration and score for the hit Tony Award-winning Broadway play “Movin’ Out.”

Tickets will be available for purchase by the general public beginning at 10 a.m. Friday, Oct. 31.   back...
