Billy Joel has some “firsts” lined up for 2017. The Piano Man is going to be playing several massive venues this touring season. Among those, he’s scheduled to play Los Angeles’ Dodger Stadium for the first time and play the first concert ever at the Atlanta Braves’ new soon-to-be-opened SunTrust Park.
While Billy Joel is best known as a New Yorker, the artist first came to prominence in the 1970’s living in Los Angeles as a piano player and lounge singer at the Executive Room in Los Angeles under the name, Bill Martin. So, his first ever performance at Dodger Stadium is homecoming of sorts.
The legendary rocker will hit up Cleveland, Chicago, Boston and Philadelphia, as well as adding another show at Madison Square Garden.
