Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Billy Joel will be opening the new Nassau Coliseum on April 5, 2017, for its first show since its renovation.
This will mark the venue's reopening after undergoing a major renovation. On August 4, 2015, Billy Joel fans packed the venue for its final show, as Joel performed a three-hour set of his classic hits.
A native of Long Island, Joel will play his 33rd career show at Nassau Coliseum. He sold out the venue nine times in 1998, which was a record for the most sellout shows in one year. As a result of that milestone, a banner continues to hang in the rafters.
Governor Andrew Cuomo praised Joel for being both an "international icon," as well as a "New York treasure." Nassau County Executive Edward Mangano confirmed that there is no better performer that is suited for this re-opening.
Throughout his decorated career in the music industry, Joel has sold 150 million albums, and he is the sixth best-selling recording artist of all time. He has also won six Grammy awards, which include the "Grammy Legend Award." Joel is a Kennedy Center honoree, as well as a member of the Rock and Rock Hall of Fame and the Songwriter's Hall of Fame.
