Billy Joel set to return to Philadelphia in May

The Philadelphia Phillies and Live Nation announced on Thursday that six-time Grammy Award winning artist Billy Joel will return to Citizens Bank Park on May 29.

The soon-to-be 70-year-old musician will continue his stadium residency for the sixth straight year, which is more than any artist in the arena's 15-year history.

"Billy Joel's past performances at Citizens Bank Park have been exceptional which is why his fans in Philadelphia return year after year," said Phillies Executive Vice President David Buck.
