The first fall edition of Billy Joel's unprecedented Madison Square Garden residency is set to take place on Oct. 2. The Piano Man has of course been booked to perform at the historic NYC venue at least once a month indefinitely. As one of the most successful recording artists active today, Joel boasts a song catalog rich in hits, though he has said he plans to keep the setlist varied for each respective performance in an effort to offer fans a truly unique concert experience.
Madison Square Garden Seating Information
The layout for this Billy Joel MSG show will be similar to that of his other concerts at the venue. The stage will be set up near Sections 110-114, with the Floor seating area situated directly in front of it. The Floor sections are all reserved and are broken down into three distinct areas including A-C, D-F, and 1-3 in the very back. The remaining sections of standard Madison Square Garden will be available in the 100, 200, 300, 400, and Suites, though note that several sections in the 300 and 400 levels will have obstructed views of the show.
