Billy Joel Starts 2014 Off On The Right Note

Billy Joel Starts 2014 Off On The Right Note

Billy Joel followed up his New Year's Eve performance at the Barclays Center with his first show of what will be a busy 2014 for The Piano Man. Billy Joel in Concert will see Joel performing a number of dates across North America with 9 shows at the legendary Madison Square Garden.

Joel performed Tuesday night in Florida at the sold out BB&T Center. It sounds like, based on the fans reaction on social media that Joel put on a terrific show.

The critics' reviews from Tuesday night's performance seem to be equally positive. Joel quelled any fears that he would be rusty following his self-imposed sabbatical.

"Joel hammered away gleefully at the popular numbers with a voice that appeared to be in as good a shape as ever, holding up the night's energy over the course of the 23-song set with ease," the Broward Palm Beach Times said.

Joel also pleased at least one reviewer by performing a number of deep cuts in addition to playing his usual hits. "Instead of mailing in a few hours of greatest hits, Joel, clad in his black suit and shirt, treated the enthusiastic crowd to a night of deep tracks," Boca magazine said.

Joel will continue his tour over the next couple weeks with a few more dates in Florida. Then he will be coming back up north for a couple of sold out shows at MSG on Jan. 27 and Feb. 3.
