BILLY JOEL performed his 100th career concert at New York's Madison Square Garden on July 18, 2018. I attended this milestone event, and here are some photos and a video snippet that I took of the show, as well as other photographers.

After a 3-gig European tour, (Old Trafford Stadium, Manchester, U.K. on June 16, 2018. Aviva Stadium, Dublin, Ireland, on June 23, 2018 and Volkspark Stadium, Hamburg, Germany on June 30, 2018) BILLY JOEL is back in the States and preparing for his record-breaking 100th lifetime concert at New York' Madison Square Garden! This concert is to be held on July 18, 2018 @ 8 P.M. (And I'm going to the show!  Yes, I have tickets to this SOLD OUT concert, 17th row, section 109, right next to the stage!) Special guests are sure to show up to help Billy celebrate this milestone achivement, which will likely never be duplicated! And, BILLY JOEL is still in strong demand in New York and will probably keep selling sold-out shows to his monthly MSG concerts for a couple of years to come! Visit later this week for posted stories, photos and videos of this concert!
