There’s a first time for everything, even at 100-year-old venues. Billy Joel will take the stage at Wrigley Field this summer – the first time a musician has ever played a return show at Cubs Park. The Grammy-award winner will perform at the Chicago ballpark July 18. The first time Joel played the Friendly Confines was 2009 when he and Elton John stopped by the venue on their “Face to Face” co-headline tour. Billy Joel American Express presale begins on Tuesday January 21st.
“As we prepare to celebrate 100 years of great moments at Wrigley Field, it’s fitting Billy Joel will return to help us celebrate this great milestone,” said Chicago Cubs Chairman, Tom Ricketts. “He is such a spectacular performer and we can’t wait for him to fill the venue with his legendary songs this July!”
