Billy Joel plays second Auckland concert


Billy Joel fans in Sydney and Auckland can rejoice, because they’ve just scored one last chance to secure tickets to see Billy Joel on his upcoming tour of Australia and New Zealand.

The extra two shows will now increase Billy’s Australia/New Zealand tour to an impressive 10 show run of dates from the original six dates announced.

In 2006 Billy toured Australia thrilling the audiences and critics alike with a show packed with hit after hit - Piano Man, Uptown Girl, New York State of Mind, River of Dreams and Tell Her About It to
name just a few. Breaking attendance records across Australia, Billy left everyone desperate for his return.

The Herald Sun announced: “…his performance showed why he remains one of the premier acts of the world”.

The Courier Mail were similarly thrilled: “There were no huge screens, no pyrotechnics, no gimmicks at all – unless you count a revolving piano – because Joel didn’t need them. The focus was all
on the piano man – just as it should be.”

“Billy Joel performed with expertise and intensity all night long.” announced The Age, and the Sydney Morning Herald concurred: “…he is a well-seasoned entertainer, with a gift for writing songs
that push all the crowd-pleasing buttons.”
