The concert will be the first for Joel as a headliner in the city since 2008, when he played the last concert at Shea Stadium. He returned to Madison Square Garden in 2012 for a Sandy relief benefit concert, but this year's Dec. 31 show will be his first time playing a full set.
Ben Folds Five will be opening for Joel, according to Rolling Stone. Tickets for the show will go on sale Nov. 9, so says a recent tweet from the Barclays Center account.
