LIVE NATION is thrilled to announce one of the greatest singer/songwriter/composer of modern times, BILLY JOEL will perform for one night only, in his first New Zealand stadium show in twenty-five years on Saturday, December 3, with a history-making performance at the iconic Eden Park stadium in Auckland.

An artist who requires little introduction, Billy Joel is one of the biggest concert draws in the world. Having sold
over 160 million records and scoring six GRAMMY® wins from 23 nominations, Joel ranks as one of the most
popular and respected entertainers in history – the sixth best-selling recording artist of all time, and the third best-selling solo artist.

In New Zealand, Billy Joel has amassed an impressive 57 million streams, four number one albums and ten Top
10 albums. 1983’s An Innocent Man spent a phenomenal 83 consecutive weeks on the New Zealand album chart and 1977’s The Stranger, (certified 4 x Platinum) 77 weeks.

Billy Joel’s anthology has soundtracked the lives of millions, his impeccable musicianship and transcendent songs recognised worldwide.

Inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame in 1999, Joel received The Kennedy Center Honors (one of the USA’s top cultural awards) in 2013.

In 2014, he received both The Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song and the once-in-a-century ASCAP Centennial Award – the latter presented to American music icons in recognition of their incomparable accomplishments in their respective music genres and beyond.

In 2016, the Library of Congress selected ‘Piano Man’ for preservation in the National Recording Registry
for its “cultural, historic, and artistic significance.”​ 

He’s the recipient of numerous other awards, including a Tony
(for Movin’ Out, a Broadway musical based on his music), MusiCares Person Of The Year, and an inductee in the
Songwriter’s Hall of Fame.
