PHOENIX, Jan. 31, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The Piano Man, Billy Joel, is still wowing fans around the world with live concerts. Joel has added a stop at the US Airways Center on Sunday, June 1st to his 2014 headlining tour.
The US Airways Center is located in downtown Phoenix and it opened about 20 years ago. The Phoenix Suns and Phoenix Mercury call this arena home during their respective seasons. This venue's naming rights are owned by US Airways until 2022. In 2003, the arena underwent extensive renovations and one of the best things that happened was the addition of an air-conditioned glassed in pavilion which is used to keep people comfortable while waiting in line before events. This venue can accommodate approximately 18,400 fans for a basketball game and definitely more for a concert with floor seating.
Earlier this week, Joel played his first residency show at Madison Square Garden, something he will be doing once a month for the foreseeable future. In between dates at the World's Most Famous Arena, Joel will play at many other popular venues including the US Airways Arena in Phoenix.
Joel is one of the best selling artists in the history of American rock and roll, as well as around the world. He has sold more than 150 million records around the world, which is the third most in American solo artist history and sixth best-selling artist in the world. His 1985 Greatest Hits Volume 1 & Volume 2 is the third best selling album in the United States and is his best selling record with more than 23 million sales.
Throughout the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, Joel saw 33 singles reach the top 40 charts in the United States, which he has he rare distinction of being able to say he wrote each song. The six-time Grammy Award winner has been inducted into three different Hall of Fames including the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Long Island Music Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
On New Year's Eve, Joel performed at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, which began his movement to perform more shows in 2014. The iconic singer of "The Piano Man," "The River of Dreams," "Uptown Girl," "My Life," "Tell Her About it," "A Matter of Trust," and "This is the Time," will play many of these songs as well as other lesser known songs like "Where's the Orchestra," which his diehard fans will go crazy over.
Joel has been honored with many other different distinctions including in December 2013 when he was honored with the Kennedy Center Honors, which is the highest honor someone could get for influencing American culture with the arts. He was also the first non-classical composer to be honored with a portrait in Steinway Hall.
Fans can catch the 23-time Grammy Award winner live at US Airways Center in Phoenix on Sunday, June 1st. Shows have been selling out quickly during his residency at MSG and this could be an indication of how quickly the tickets will go for Joel's show in Phoenix.
