We got the best tips and information to chose the best seats in the house for the Billy Joel tour, even those nyctickets hard to find

Billy Joel - In Concert Tour, 2014-2017 - Europe, North America

by Carlos Becerril






How to choose the best place to enjoy the Billy Joel concert? I will give you the tip to choose the Golden Section for the best experience.  I saw Billy Joel 26 years ago, a quarter of a century and those notes are still bouncing inside my head. Billy Joel is one of those musicians that we feel they are more like a friend, a person who understand us, he knows when we are happy, sad, unemployed, brokenhearted of traveling across the sea, some kind of long lost friend that if we encounter him walking down 42nd street, we will make a date for lunch instead of asking for a selfie.


I am no longer afraid of becoming lost, because the journey back always reveals something new, and that is ultimately good for the artist.

Madison Square Garden

He´s really in a New York state of mind, during this long tour he decided to play as residency in the MSG every month as long as there is demand for tickets, breaking all kind of records, maybe by the end of the tour he will have more than 80 concerts in the most famous arena: The Madison Square Garden, with special guest as: Sting, Jimmy Fallon or John Mellencamp, and Pink or Axl Rose at LA

Note: you could find tickets for each concert in the next list; for the GOLDEN SECTION seats in Madison Square Garden choose SECTION C

Each show is different, he changes the setlist for every city. What more can I say about the Piano Man Music? There are great writers and music critics that have been following his amazing career over the years, so it´s better to google them to read the greatness of this music from the words of the specialists, I could only say that for me: Billy Joel is part of the soundtrack of my life.


Have you listened to the radio lately? Have you heard the canned, frozen and processed product being dished up to the world as American popular music today?

And incredible long tour spanning for more than 3 years, I hope he could make a leg to Latin America. The stage and musicians are amazing, for almost 3 hours you could hear, dance, smile, cry and remember everything that is or was important in your life, remember that after all these years listening to this great music, we´re still Only Human.


When I look at great works of art or listen to inspired music, I sense intimate portraits of the specific times in which they were created.

So we arrive to the best part: What is the GOLDEN SECTION to see Billy Joel? Years ago I had a great course of music appreciation, one time the teacher took us to a classic concert, it was in a small town so you could choose where to seat, so the teacher told us: “Every time you go to a piano recital, seat close to the stage in the left of the auditorium.” And the he explain, “that way you could see the hands of the pianist playing” (in classic piano recitals the piano is always open so the pianist is always at the left) When you could see the pianist hands, you anticipate the sounds, you see the variations, the speed, the intention. Billy Joel places his piano at the center of the stage, but unlike a classic concert he sits in the right side. So the GOLDEN SECTION to see Billy Joel, is closer to the stage and in the right side. That´s what I call the golden section. If you find a ticket there BUY IT, the experience will be amazing. If you can´t find the tickets there, check the map for the Green Zone (the recommended seats)

So hurry up to get your tickets for GOLDEN SECTION or the THE GREEN ZONE.
