Billy Joel Shea Stadium Tickets on Sale

Tickets for Billy Joel's July 16th Shea Stadium show, said to be the last concert at Shea Stadium, went on sale Saturday, Feb. 16th. Apparently the tickets are available only at or at the phone number for 507tixx. Tickets are probably already gone at this point, but if you really want to go to this show the site has a link to a site where you can bid for the tickets through a Ticketmaster auction.

While many people are dying to go to this concert because of the twin appeal of seeing Billy Joel and attending the last show at Shea Stadium, well, you may be better off waiting a bit. It's long been said that if the July 16th show sold out quickly, a second show might be added. If that show takes place on July 17th or later, then people with tickets for the 16th will not be seeing the "Last Play at Shea," as the original concert is being billed.

For those who want to get Billy Joel tickets but aren't wedded to the idea of going to the Shea concert, there are plenty of other venues to see the Piano Man. In fact, he's on tour now. The Billy Joel page at Ticketmaster lists shows at a variety of venues, from Anaheim later this month to Denver, Columbus, and the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.
