Billy Joel to headline Wrigley Field

Plan for Wrigley plaza delayedGreg Kot, Chicago Tribune

Billy Joel will become the first artist to headline Wrigley Field twice when he performs at the historic ballpark July 18, promoters Live Nation announced Thursday.

Joel, who co-headlined Wrigley in 2009 with Elton John, is now also doing an extended once-a-month residency at Madison Square Garden in New York. He has sold more than 150 million albums, but has not released any new pop albums since “River of Dreams” in 1993. The pianist did release an album of classical compositions in 2001, “Fantasies & Delusions.”

Tickets ($44.50, $94, $124.50) go on sale at 10 a.m. Jan. 25 via cubs.com/billyjoel.
