Billy Joel is ready to party like it’s 2024 with a special New Year’s Eve concert happening Dec. 31 at the UBS Arena in Elmont, N.Y. This will not only mark the “Piano Man” singer’s debut performance at the arena, but will be his first show back on Long Island since 2018.
Get ready to say goodbye to 2023 with songs such as “Vienna,” “Only the Good Die Young,” “Uptown Girl” and more at the concert slated to kick off at 9:30 p.m. ET. You won’t want to miss out on this event, especially if you’re looking for some tours and festivals to add to your calendar before the end of the year. The show will be a one-night-only affair before the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer continues on with his almost sold-out tour (which you can get tickets to here).
Joel’s official Instagram account made the announcement on Thursday (Sept. 7) with a photo of the outside of the arena followed by the show date.
“Kicking off the New Year with a bang! 🎉 Long Island’s very own Billy Joel is returning to his roots for an unforgettable New Year’s Eve at UBS Arena at Belmont Park on December 31, 2023! 🎹,” the caption read.
Plus, before the rock star hits UBS Arena, Joel will be teaming up with another major artist, Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks, during a one night only performance in Phoenix, Arizona, on Friday (Dec. 8). Tickets are being sold on Ticketmaster starting at $175 or you may be able to grab them for cheaper on resale site. Looking to grab tickets now? Click here.
