On the heels of the first monthly show of his Madison Square Garden residency in January, Sag Harbor’s Billy Joel has announced a 10th show at the Manhattan venue, October 2 at 8 p.m.

Tickets go on sale to the general public Friday, February 14, at 10 a.m. There is a presale for Citi cardmembers starting Tuesday, February 11, at 10 a.m.

Ticket prices range from $81.45 to $144.95, inclusive of fees. Visit

Joel has played 46 or so concerts at MSG since 1978, and he could very well play 46 more before his monthly concert series comes to a close. Back in 2006, Joel set a record for the most consecutive sold out shows at the Garden, with 12 performances. He is now poised to break that record in January 2015 if he stays on pace.

“Performing at Madison Square Garden is a thrilling experience,” Joel says. “I’ve played different venues all over the world, but there’s no place like coming home to The Garden.”

His USSR tour was the subject of the new documentary Billy Joel: A Matter of Trust.

On December 8 at the Kennedy Center Opera House in Washington, D.C., Joel received Kennedy Center honors.

His daughter, Alexa Ray Joel, recently paid tribute to her father with a cover of his classic “Just the Way You Are” and performed it on Katie and Today.

Joel has won six Grammys, including the Grammy Legend Award, and he has been inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
