Billy Joel Tickets Continued
Billy Joel recorded a huge number of rock hits from 1973 (beginning with the single "Piano Man") to his retirement from recording pop music in 1993. He has continued to tour occasionally, usually with Elton John, in addition to writing and recording classical music.
One of Billy Joel's most successful singles, "Uptown Girl", was conceived as he wondered aloud how the gorgeous Christie Brinkley could wind up with such a guy like himself. It became a worldwide hit upon its release, and Billy Joel's sole #1 in the United Kingdom. The resulting album, An Innocent Man, was compiled as a tribute to the doo-wop music of the 1960s, and also resulted in Billy Joel's second Billboard #1 hit, "Tell Her About It". The album, which reached #4 on the charts, boasted six top-30 singles, the most of any album in Billy Joel's catalog.
Billy Joel's Greatest Hits album was released in 1985 and was highly successful, selling over twenty million copies worldwide and becoming the top selling double album of all time by a solo artist (and second overall after The Wall by Pink Floyd). It has since been certified diamond by the RIAA, and is the 6th best selling album in the United States.
In 1999, Billy Joel performed at New York's Madison Square Garden on the eve of the new millennium which at the time was considered to be his last solo concert. The concert (dubbed "The Night Of The 2000 Years") ran on close to four hours and would later be released as "2000 Years: The Millennium Concert".
Billy Joel's induction into the Songwriter's Hall of Fame in 1992, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1999 has further solidified his status as one of America's leading music icons.
