Elton John & Billy Joel: The 2009 Face to Face Tour


In a recent interview with the Long Island Herald, Billy Joel's lead guitarist, Tommy Byrnes, had the following to say about the upcoming 2009 Face to Face World Tour with Elton John:

"I'm riding the Billy moment until it falls off a cliff. And I think it's ever going to, because he's going stronger than ever now. We're starting in Asia at the end of October, Hong Kong, Singapore, Korea, Japan, Australia, New Zealand. Then we break for Christmas, then we're doing five weeks in a Seminal reservation down in Hollywood, Florida. Then we go out with Elton for five weeks, then we break, then we go out for another five week run with Elton. So he's saying yes to a lot of work, which is really great. He's in better form and better shape then he's been since he was a much younger man."

This adds more weight to the very plausible face to face tour concept. Stay tuned for more information.

Great news to see two great artists on tour together, when are they coming to Beijing?

Their music is known to millions of people here in China, a show in Beijing or Shanghai would be much appreciated!

Season Greetings Elton and Billy, a have a great 2009.

A big fan in Beijing!

I just surprised my parents with tickets in Philadelphia, just 26 rows back! They are so excited! It could only get better if Elton or Billy said Hello to Jeff & Belinda! They are sooo excited. Thank you for doing this tour!

I was lucky to win two tickets to see Elton & Billy on N0v. 20 2009 in Salt Lake City, Utah 10 days ago. The "Name that Tune" song I won with was Elton's song "Burn Down the Mission" from Tumbleweed Connection released in 1970! I knew it in 3 notes! I've been listening to them both since the earliest of days! Can hardly wait to see them both!
