One year after Billy Joel's Madison Square Garden residency was announced, the legendary rock pianist will return to the venue for his final residency show of 2014 on Dec. 18. This beloved concert series has delighted out-of-towners and native New Yorkers alike, as Joel has reached back into his four-decade career to perform many forgotten deep cuts in addition to the standard pop hits that have endured for generations.
