Mr Piano Man, Billy Joel is headed to Australia, with the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame member to perform a special one-off concert at the famed Melbourne Cricket Ground in December – his first Australian concert in 14 years.

One of the most recognisable names in music the last 50 years, the famed singer-songwriter and composer has soundtrack multiple generations' most memorable moments; his hits include 'Piano Man', 'You May Be Right', 'Always A Woman', 'We Didn't Start The Fire', 'Uptown Girl', 'Big Shot', 'It's Still Rock And Roll To Me', 'Only The Good Die Young', 'New York State Of Mind' and much more.

"I'm happy to announce that I'm finally coming to Australia to do one exclusive show at the Melbourne Cricket Ground as part of Always Live," Billy says.

"It's been a really long time since I've been there; I'm really looking forward to coming and I'm bringing the whole family and we're going to enjoy it. I'll see you there."

Alongside six Grammy Awards, Billy Joel has sold 150 million-plus records globally making him the sixth best-selling recording artist of all time.



"What a coup for Victoria, the music capital, to have one of the greatest artists of our era perform exclusively in Melbourne at one of the greatest stadiums in the world," Mushroom Group CEO Matt Gudinski says.

"To work with Always Live to bring his show to the 'G fulfils a dream my great father and I had. . . To host Billy here in Melbourne is truly special."

Billy Joel performs at Melbourne Cricket Ground on 10 December.

Tickets on sale from 10am EST on 4 July.
