He didn't start the fire, but he'll make you feel a burn, a burning desire, even. The great Billy Joel, that is, for those born after 1995. He's coming to light BB&T Center aflame on January 7, and you'll be there, with your mama, your papa, and your cousin too.
The Piano Man took a few years off from playing live, but homeboy is back and raring to go. He hasn't played South Florida since 2009. So, this is kind of a big deal.
The prolific artist is also a do-gooder who just last week donated the proceeds from a sold out show to Long Island Cares and came out of hiding to perform for the victims of Hurricane Sandy at the 12-12-12 concert. Also notable, Joel will receive the pretty facny Kennedy Center Honor this December.
