Gavin DeGraw Schedules More Dates Opening for Billy Joel 

Larry Marano/Getty ImagesGavin DeGraw's stint as Billy Joel's opening act at a show earlier this month evidently went well; he's now been invited back to open a whole bunch more shows for The Piano Man.

Gavin initially warmed up the crowd for Billy's show in Sunrise, Florida earlier this month.  Now, he'll fit in the additional opening gigs around his own headlining tour schedule, which kicks off March 23. In order to do this, he's had to rearrange a few dates, however; his April 1 show in Reading, PA will now take place May 10, while his April 11 show in Northfield, OH has been pushed to April 17.

Notably, Gavin will open for Billy during two of the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer's "residency" shows at New York City's Madison Square Garden, where he's promised to play a show a month "as long as there is interest."

Here are Gavin's dates with Billy Joel:

2/9 -- Morrisville, NC, PNC Arena
2/21 -- Pittsburgh, PA, Consol Energy Center
3/21 -- New York, NY, Madison Square Garden
4/1 --  Cleveland, OH,  Quicken Loans Arena
4/6 --  Louisville, KY,  KFC YUM! Center
4/18 --  New York, NY,  Madison Square Garden
