Billy Joel

Now here’s a consummate New Yorker worth getting behind. Billy Joel, known to those who love him as simply The Piano Man (after his most iconic song), hasn’t released an album since 2001’s collection of classical compositions Fantasies & Delsusions. But that hasn’t stopped the pioneering, piano-centric rock ‘n’ roller from continuing to pack arenas around the globe. Fans have every reason to hope that Joel, a man who knows his audience and caters to it well, will lean heavily on music from his prolific 1970s output in terms of his set list for this show. Joel, who over the past several years has been raking in the distinguished accolades (see: The Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song and The Kennedy Center Honors), is a man on fire in the live setting, where his gift for piano playing is given room to roam. Maybe he didn’t start the fire, but he’s damn sure keeping it going. $49.50-$1,000, 8pm Fri, AT&T Center, One AT&T Center Pkwy., (210) 444-5000,
