Billy Joel Found Touring with Elton 'Rote'

Billy Joel will perform once a month at Madison Square Garden - as long as the fans will have him.
The Grammy Award-winning singer announced that he'll perform a residency at the New York venue every month for as long as there is a demand.

He's set to perform shows on January 27, February 3, March 21 and April 28. He will also perform on his 65th birthday (May 9).

"We're gonna dust off some stuff. We're gonna feature more of the album tracks, more obscure songs. We'll still do some songs people are familiar with and like, but we're gonna change it up. It gives you an edge," Joel said.

"When I was on tour with Elton, we pretty much did the same show every night. That becomes rote; I don't want to be on automatic pilot. We're going to change the set list, and I want to do more obscure songs. I'd like to get to the point where at least 50% of the show is obscurities" and the rest hits.
