In December 2013, Billy Joel became the first-ever music franchise of The World’s Most Famous Arena, joining the ranks of The Garden’s other original franchises – the New York Knicks, Rangers and Liberty. Since January 2014, Joel has played one show per month at The Garden as part of the Time Warner Cable Concert Series. This hugely successful residency has led to 41 sold out shows through May 25. Joel currently holds both of The Garden’s concert-related performance records – for “Longest Run of Any Artist” and for “Most Number of Performances By Any Artist,” both of which he continues to break each month during his residency.
