Live Nation announced today that Billy Joel will perform a special New Year’s Eve concert in Orlando at the Amway Center on December 31, 2014. This performance marks Billy Joel’s first solo headlining appearance in Orlando since 2007.
"It’s a very exciting time to be in Downtown Orlando as its vibrant art scene continues to thrive and our world-class venue for entertainment welcomes a long-revered artist,” said Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer. "I'm excited to announce another major event and invite our community to celebrate the New Year with Billy Joel at the Amway Center. This is yet another example of the Amway Center continuing to deliver on its promise of bringing the very best in live entertainment to our Central Florida community. It will be a Truly Legendary New Year’s Eve celebration!"
"It's an honor and a thrill to welcome Billy Joel back to Orlando after seven years to perform at the Amway Center and ring in the New Year," said Orlando Venues Executive Director Allen Johnson. "A celebratory evening with this inimitable artist will surely be remembered as one of Amway Center's Truly Legendary concerts."
Billy Joel is one of the highest grossing touring artists in the world. Having sold over 150 million albums globally, his music has remained among the most popular in the world. The singer/songwriter/composer is the sixth best-selling recording artist of all time and the third best-selling solo artist.
Recently, Joel was honored by Steinway & Sons with a painted portrait that hangs in Steinway Hall in Manhattan, the first non-classical pianist to be immortalized in the collection. He played to more than 110,000 fans when he performed the final concerts at Shea Stadium, featured in the 2010 documentary film "The Last Play At Shea.” This week, Joel will receive The Kennedy Center Honor, one of the United States' top cultural awards.
Joel has received six Grammy® Awards, including the prestigious Grammy Legend Award. He has been inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and has received numerous industry awards. His music has also served as the inspiration and score for the hit Tony Award-winning Broadway musical “Movin’ Out.”
