Billy Joel’s long-running Madison Square Garden residency has added a 55th show, set to bring the total number of tickets sold to more than a million over the course of the four-year run.

The latest concert, on 23 August 2018, is the latest in a residency that began in January 2014 and has seen the Piano Man play a show at the 20,000-capacity Garden every month since.

The shows are promoted by Madison Square Garden Company in association with AEG Presents, with tickets for the 55th date on sale next Monday (5 February) at 15.00 GMT.

Joel’s Billy Joel in Concert tour, which includes his MSG shows, was the world’s 15th highest-grossing in 2017.
