[January 16, 2014, Chicago, IL] – Billy Joel will perform at Wrigley Field on Friday, July 18, 2014. The concert will be Billy Joel’s first solo appearance in Chicago in seven years and marks the first time a musical artist has made a return appearance to the storied ballpark.
“As we prepare to celebrate 100 years of great moments at Wrigley Field, it's fitting Billy Joel will return to help us celebrate this great milestone,” said Chicago Cubs Chairman, Tom Ricketts. “He is such a spectacular performer and we can't wait for him to fill the venue with his legendary songs this July!”
Billy Joel is one of the highest grossing touring artists in the world. Having sold over 150 million albums globally, his music has remained among the most popular in the world. The singer/songwriter/composer is the sixth best-selling recording artist of all time and the third best-selling solo artist.
Recently, Joel was honored by Steinway & Sons with a painted portrait that hangs in Steinway Hall in Manhattan, the first non-classical pianist to be immortalized in the collection. He played to more than 110,000 fans when he performed the final concerts at Shea Stadium, featured in the 2010 documentary film “The Last Play At Shea.” Joel recently received The Kennedy Center Honor, one of the United States' top cultural awards.
Billy Joel has received six GRAMMY® Awards, including the prestigious Grammy Legend Award. He has been inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and has received numerous industry awards. His music has also served as the inspiration and score for the hit Tony Award-winning Broadway play “Movin’ Out.”
