Billy Joel Now Has Three Florida Dates on the Books

BillyJoel.comFollowing the announcement of a concert in Brooklyn, New York, on New Year's Eve, and what appears to be a tour kickoff date in Sunrise, Florida, in January, Billy Joel has now added two more dates to his growing list of shows.

In addition to the January 7 concert in Sunrise, he'll perform in Tampa, Florida, on January 17, and in Jacksonville, Florida, on January 22.  Tickets for the Tampa and Jacksonville shows go on sale Saturday, November 15.  Tickets for the Sunrise and Brooklyn concerts are on sale now.

Here's hoping that these three dates are only the beginning of what will be Joel's first major solo tour since 2008.  On Friday, he'll finish up a brief tour of the U.K. and Ireland, for which he's been receiving uniformly positive reviews.  Like his surprise charity gig last month in Long Island, New York, the set lists overseas have been a mix of Billy's big hits and the occasional rare album track.
