The Indians made a big announcement early on Thursday with the official intro for new 1B/DH Edwin Encarnacion, and now the big concert announcement for Progressive Field has a lot of Northeast Ohio fans happy as well.
Coming to Cleveland on Friday July 14th is none other than ‘The Piano Man’ Billy Joel, bringing his extensive catalog and numerous hits for a rare concert at the ballpark.
Joel last played in Cleveland to a sold out show at Quicken Loans Arena on April 1st, 2014, but is known to play at various stadiums throughout the country during the summer months.
Last year he played at nearby PNC Park in Pittsburgh, the home of the Pirates, on July 1st.
Joel’s hits include “Piano Man,” “We Didn’t Start the Fire,” “Allentown,” “River of Dreams,” “Only the Good Die Young,” and “You May Be Right.”
Oddly enough Joel’s song “We Didn’t Start the Fire” was used as a parody Wednesday to mock the many Browns quarterbacks who have come through Cleveland since 1999.
Tickets for the show will go on sale January 9th.
Here’s a few videos of Joel’s hits throughout the years:
