A few minutes ago, Billy Joel shared some sad news regarding his health and his upcoming concert series in New York.
In a statement on Sunday, December 18, the 73-year-old singer shared on Facebook that Joel revealed that tomorrow’s live performance at Madison Square Garden has been postponed until June of next year due to the virus. fighting
“I am disappointed to share that I am on doctor’s orders for vocal rest due to a viral infection, so unfortunately I will have to reschedule my concert on Monday, December 19th at Madison Square Garden to June,” he wrote.
Joel’s statement continued. “I am very sorry to inform you that it is so close to show day, but I had hoped to be closer to a full recovery by now. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen.” The Long Island native later added: “I look forward to seeing you in the New Year.”
And while fans are certainly upset that they won’t be able to see the artist for another six months, they seem to be heeding the doctor’s orders, writing well wishes in the comments of his latest post.
“Feel better, Billy. Most of us are in the same boat, there are so many germs around. May you and your family have a wonderful Christmas and a happy, healthy 2023.” one of the fans replied.
“Feel better, drink lots of tea and honey,” suggested another.
The sold-out (and now postponed) show is part of the musician’s monthly residency at Madison Square Garden, which means once a month the Piano Man returns to the Big Apple, no matter where he is in the world, to perform. live for just one night.
Unfortunately, due to Mr. Long Island’s popularity in the Tri-State area, Joel’s upcoming residency dates in January, February, March and April are all sold out. So your best bet to see him before June would be one of the few tickets left at MSG for the May 2023 performance.
Feel better, Billy.
