Do This Many People Really Love Billy Joel?


So last night I was at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino when I saw an interesting poster on display. Billy Joel's sexy mug was plastered on the wall. Come on, ladies still think he' sexy...and I noticed that he's got not one, not two, but three sold out concerts coming up in January.

That's fairly impressive for a man who's still touring based off of nostalgia alone and I'm sure that some people were heartbroken that his three-night stint is completely sold-out. So what does Billy Joel decide to do: he's added a fourth show to satisfy all of his fans here in South Florida. Four shows--at the Hard Rock. Am I missing something?

(Okay, is it just me in thinking that roboscalpers are buying up these tickets and not real people?)

Anyway, if you were upset that you'd miss out on seeing the piano man, he's now officially playing one more local show on January 18th. Tickets go on sale this Saturday, Nov 15, and all of the details are below.
