No F2F in NYC 'Till '10 - Latin America This Year

Sorry, Billy Joel and Elton John fans. You will have to wait until next year to come face to face with the "Face to Face" tour in the New York area.

Before the tour opener last night in Jacksonville, Joel told me that there are no plans to play the area this year. The current leg of the tour runs through the South and California. In May, it hits the Midwest and in July it tours stadiums, including two nights at Wrigley Field in Chicago and two nights in Philadelphia's Citizens Bank Park.

"We just did the two nights at Shea last year," Joel said. "We thought the market might be a little tapped out."

Of course, the Joel fans who snapped up those tickets in record-setting time last year might disagree, however, there are tentative plans for a New York run in 2010. Joel said he is excited about taking "Face to Face" to Latin America for the first time this year.

Hi There!,

This is early news at this stage. Billy Joel has said that he and Elton will indeed be bringing their Face 2 Face Tour to Latin America at the end of this year.

However, there is no official confirmation or tour dates as yet.

I will post all news as soon as I can.

Kind Regards,
