Billy Joel to open NEW Nassau Coliseum on Long Island!

After 2 years and a $165 million renovation, the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum on Long Island, New York will re-open with a BILLY JOEL concert! BILLY JOEL played the last show there before it closed for major renovations on August 4, 2015, (which I attended). A special ceremony was held Monday night (4/3/2017) at the newly renovated Nassau Coliseum celebrating BILLY JOEL. A banner was raised in Joel's honor, hanging in the rafters, and salutes what will be his 33 sold-out show at this venue. See an exclusive interview with News 12's, Elisa DiStefano, as she interviews Billy during the special ceremony with BILLY JOEL reminiscing about Long Island's Coliseum.
