Are you a fan of America's pastime?  How about smooth sing-songwriter piano maestros of the 1970s and '80s? How about both? Well, have we got news for you: Billy Joel is coming to Phoenix for a show at Chase Field.

The show will take place on Saturday, March 9, 2019. The show was announced at a press conference this morning at Chase Field that featured a piano player and a piano-shaped cake. Tickets will go on sale December 7 via Ticketmaster.

The Chase Field show continues the relationship between Joel, the beloved performer responsible for hits such as "Piano Man" and "Just the Way You Are," and Major League Baseball. 

In 2010 the singer performed the final concert at the now-demolished Shea Stadium, formerly home to the New York Mets. He also embarked on a four-date tour of baseball stadiums earlier in 2018. This will be his first stadium concert in Arizona.
