BIlly Joel Set for Festivals, Tour to Follow?
Billy Joel Tour Dates 2013
Billy Joel, a man synonymous with New York and the winner of six Grammy Awards to go along with over 150 million records sold worldwide, is popping up with a few festival shows in New Orleans this coming summer and he may not be done. Joel, who will play the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival (set to take place over April 26-28 and May 2-5) has hinted that he may take a dive into the touring scene again but this time with a different spin on things.
In an interview with Rolling Stone Magazine, Joel hinted at the prospect of playing full album shows instead of his customary greatest hits shows. In the interview Joel takes us into what he is currently thinking as he contemplates what his next move would be:
“I’d like to do more songs that weren’t hits. I got tired of doing the greatest hits set. It was boring playing the same songs over and over. There are a lot of songs the longtime fans want to hear,” he says. “If I was going to play again in places like New York, I would probably feature entire albums. It would give me a chance to do songs we haven’t played. . . We’d do one album and then play some obscurities. I enjoy playing those more than I enjoy playing the hits. . . I’m thinking we’d do these shows in Philly, New York, Washington D.C., Detroit and Chicago.”
