After a five-year hiatus, piano man Billy Joel makes his return to Denver Sept. 16 at the Pepsi Center. The show starts at 8 p.m. Joel’s last performance at Pepsi Center was in February 2010.
“We are incredibly excited to welcome back Rock and Roll Hall of Fame legend, Billy Joel, to the Pepsi Center in Denver,” said Jim Martin, president and CEO, Kroenke Sports & Entertainment. “It is a true honor to host one of music’s most storied performers for what will be a memorable evening for his fans in Denver and throughout Colorado.”
Having sold 150 million records over the past quarter century, Joel ranks as one of most popular recording artists and respected entertainers in history. The singer/songwriter/composer is the sixth best-selling recording artist of all time, the third best-selling solo artist and is one of the highest grossing touring artists in the world.
In November 2014, Joel received both The Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song which honors living musical artists’ lifetime achievement in promoting the genre of song as a vehicle of cultural understanding, entertaining and informing audiences, and inspiring new generations, and the once-in-a-century ASCAP Centennial Award, which is presented to American music icons in recognition of their incomparable accomplishments in their respective music genres.
In December 2013, Joel received The Kennedy Center Honors, one of the United States’ top cultural awards. He is also the recipient of six Grammy Awards, including the Grammy Legend Award.
