(KMOV.com) – The Gateway City will play host to the Piano Man this spring. Live Nation announced Thursday Billy Joel will play the Scottrade Center on April 11.
The concert will be Joel’s first appearance in St. Louis since 2009 and his first solo date since 2007.
It is also a historical performance, as the concert marks the 20 year milestone since he headlined as the grand opening performer for the arena (then Kiel Center) in 1994.
“Billy Joel will be forever tied to the history of this arena as the very first artist who got it all started for us on October 15, 1994,” said Scottrade Center Senior VP of Building Operations and Booking, Jay Roberts. “As we flash forward to 2014, we are thrilled to welcome back the iconic showman who kicked off two decades of world class entertainment in downtown Saint Louis.”
Tickets will be available for purchase by the general public beginning Saturday, February 8 at 10:00 AM via The Ford Box Office at Scottrade Center, Ticketmaster.com, all Ticketmaster Retail Outlets, and by calling 1-800-745-3000.
