The Orioles announced today that, after attracting more than 70 million visitors to downtown Baltimore and the state of Maryland to enjoy baseball at iconic Camden Yards, the ballclub will partner with Live Nation to present legendary musician Billy Joel in an historic, first-ever concert held Friday, July 26 at the ballpark.
Tickets go on sale to the public Friday, January 18 at 10:00AM ET.
The Orioles Charitable Foundation will donate a portion of the proceeds from the concert to support music and arts education programs for kids in Maryland and across the Orioles’ regional territory.
Billy Joel is one of the biggest concert draws in the world and continues this achievement with an impressive run of sold-out consecutive stadium shows and concert arenas. Having sold 150 million records over the past quarter century, scoring 33 consecutive Top 40 hits, Billy Joel ranks as one of most popular recording artists and respected entertainers in history. The singer/songwriter/composer is the sixth best-selling recording artist of all time and the third best-selling solo artist. In 2016, the Library of Congress selected “Piano Man” for preservation in the National Recording Registry for its “cultural, historic, and artistic significance.”
