Billy Joel announces final residency show at Madison Square Garden


Billy Joel shared the final date for his long-running residency at New York’s famed Madison Square Garden, taking place on July 25, 2024. A message to Joel’s social media accounts read: “JUST ANNOUNCED: Billy Joel adds the final show of his record-breaking monthly residency at The Garden on Jul 25, 2024, marking his 150th lifetime show at The World’s Most Famous Arena. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Fri, Nov 10 at 10am.”

Joel’s final concert at MSG will be his 150th show overall at the legendary arena and his 104th there since he launched the residency in 2014. This past June, Joel held a press conference at MSG to announce his intentions to end the residency:  “To our audience, I want to thank them for coming to our shows for this long. It’s hard to end, even at 150 lifetime shows. I just want to thank everyone for the wonderful thing that’s happened here.”

Joel’s next scheduled concert is a November 10 co-headlining performance with Stevie Nicks in Minneapolis. He has shows scheduled at Madison Square Garden on November 22, December 19, January 11, February 9, March 28, April 26, May 9, and June 8, all of which are sold out. At the May 9 concert, Joel will celebrate his 75th birthday.

Joel has two other shows lined up with Nicks, on December 8 in Phoenix and March 9, 2024 in Arlington, Texas. His tour schedule also includes a New Year’s Eve concert in Elmont, New York; a January 24 performance in Tokyo; and co-headlining dates with Sting on February 24 in Tampa, Florida, and April 13 in San Diego.

Tickets for the July 25 MGS event will go on sale to the general public on Friday, November 10, at 10 a.m.
