Billy Joel to perform at Safeco Field this spring

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

If you heard a rumor that Billy Joel is coming to town, you may be right. It's not a fantasy.

Okay, so I just named two song titles in as many sentences by Joel, but it's not a difficult thing to do considering he released hit after hit after hit for over five decades, and he's still going strong. The Piano Man announced a special appearance in Seattle this spring, performing his first-ever concert at the baseball stadium, Safeco Field, on May 20. The announcement was made live at the SoDo sports venue on January 27 to reporters by Kevin Mather, President of the Seattle Mariners, principal residents of Safeco Field.

This is only the third live music event to be staged at the baseball field, preceded by Paul McCartney in 2013 and Beyonce/Jay Z in 2014. Although the stadium has a capacity of just over 54,000, the Joel concert is expected to accommodate about 35,000, according to Mather, who also stated during the press conference that the Emerald City show is one of only two scheduled for the West Coast on the singer-songwriter's brief tour; San Diego is the other.

Joel was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1999 and received the equally prestigious Kennedy Center Honors in 2013, in addition to earning 6 Grammy Awards and 33 Top 40 singles in his standout career. His two-disc compilation recording, Greatest Hits Volume I and II, is tied with Pink Floyd's The Wall and Led Zeppelin's Led Zeppelin IV on the best-selling albums of all time list, selling over 11.5 million copies. 'My Life,' 'Big Shot,' 'It's Still Rock and Roll to Me,' 'Allentown,' 'We Didn't Start the Fire,' 'Uptown Girl,' 'Tell Her About It,' 'Pressure,'Only the Good Die Young' and his signature tune 'New York State of Mind' are some of the songs that could land on Joel's set list for the Safeco Field show.

Tickets for Billy Joel went on sale February 5 at LiveNation.com.
