Billy Joel announces first Portland show in more than a decade

PORTLAND, Ore. – Get ready, fans – Billy Joel is coming back to Portland!

The rock icon will perform hit songs that span his career at the Moda Center on December 8, 2017. This will be Joel’s first solo performance in the Rose City in more than a decade.

Rose Quarter officials made the announcement Thursday afternoon at the Portland International Airport.

"It’s an honor to welcome Rock & Roll legend Billy Joel back to Portland,” said Amanda Mann, Vice President and General Manager of Rose Quarter Operations. “We know his fans have been anxiously awaiting his return since he last electrified the crowd in Portland 10 years ago."

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. next Friday (Feb. 24). Joel is notorious for selling out arena shows, so fans should act fast!
