Billy Joel Moves into the Garden
In 2014, Billy Joel was established as the 4th franchise at Madison Square Garden—joining the Knicks, Rangers and Liberty as a resident at the World’s Most Famous Arena.
The internationally acclaimed, six time Grammy-winning New Yorker has a decades-long history with the Garden. Since 1978, he’s played a record-breaking 94 shows, including a sold-out run of 12 consecutive nights in 2006, and a moving performance at the 12-12-12 concert benefiting victims of Sandy.
Known for his deep connection to his hometown and his inspired and inspiring storytelling, Billy Joel is one of the most popular musicians of all time. With over 150 million global album sales, he’s the sixth best-selling recording artist and the third best-selling solo artist in history. He has been inducted into both the Songwriters Hall of Fame and The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, he inspired the Tony Award-winning play Movin’ Out, and he recently received the Kennedy Center Honor for ‘The Piano Man’. That rare artist whose timeless work is increasingly beloved by long-term fans and discovered by new ones every day, seeing him light up his favorite stage is a definitive live music experience.
We have increased security measures across all of our Madison Square Garden venues and are working closely with local law enforcement in New York. In order to ensure that everybody can enjoy an unforgettable and safe experience at Madison Square Garden, we kindly ask you to consider the following precautions when coming to our venue
- We ask that all fans significantly minimize the number of bags brought to the venue. We recommend fans do not bring backpacks, as they slow entry during security checks. If you do not have a bag, please take advantage of our No Bag Express Lines, new this season, and located on the 31st street side of Chase Square
- Please plan ahead and allow yourself enough time to pass through security. Doors will open earlier for certain events to make this necessary procedure as efficient as possible
- We recommend using the Chase Entrances on 8th Avenue between 31st and 33rd for entry when possible. This will allow you to enter the venue faster and more conveniently
