Hamptons resident and Piano Man Billy Joel will join Southampton’s Howard Stern and special guests for an exclusive “Town Hall” discussion on Monday, April 28. The “deep and rich” interview will take place at a secret and intimate Manhattan location and air on both Stern’s and Joel’s SiriusXM stations.
Stern said in a press release, “The 2010 interview I did with Billy Joel was one of my favorites of my career. Now, this special hits a whole new level, with surprise guests whose lives have been changed by Billy, from the unknown to the famous, giving Billy the tribute, and fans the treat, that they deserve.”
The live special will also feature a Q&A session — Billy Joel answering questions from a select audience of SiriusXM listeners about his legendary 50-year career.
Additional details about the event, including special performances and guests, should be revealed by Howard Stern closer to the date on The Howard Stern Show on Howard’s two exclusive SiriusXM channels, Howard 100 and Howard 101.
The live “Town Hall” will air at midday on Monday, April 28 on Howard 100 (channel 100) and the limited-run Billy Joel Channel (channel 4), along with SiriusXM’s broader formats via smartphones and the internet.
SiriusXM’s Billy Joel Channel, launched on March 26 and airing through June 25, features music spanning the Rock & Roll Hall of Famer’s 50-year career — from his earliest work with The Echoes in 1964, to his 1971 solo debut Cold Spring Harbor, through his upcoming release, A Matter of Trust: The Bridge to Russia.
The Billy Joel Channel also features 40 years of archival interviews, excerpts from the “Masters Class” sessions Joel periodically offers to music students around the world, as well as rarities from the vaults, previously-unavailable studio tracks and live performances captured in his earliest days as a performer
