In a press conference on Thurs., Jan, 5, Peter Conlon, president of Live Nation Atlanta, and Atlanta Braves President, Business Derek Schiller announced that Billy Joel will perform the first concert at SunTrust Park, the new home to the Atlanta Braves. The show is billed as the Piano Man’s first appearance in Atlanta since making a solo appearance in 2015, and is set for Fri., April 28, 2017.

“Atlanta has had an ongoing love affair with Billy Joel beginning with his performances at the Electric Ballroom, Great Southeast Music Hall, and on to his sold-out performances at the Omni and Philips Arena,” Conlon said in a press release. “There is nobody hotter in music than Billy Joel.”

Either way, booking Billy Joel for the Cobb Country stadium’s first show is a safe bet. Songs such as “We Didn't Start the Fire,” “Uptown Girl,” and “It's Still Rock 'n' Roll To Me” are bound to bring a wholly different experience from what other Atlanta sports franchises have recently hosted. The Hawks brought Gucci Man and T.I. to the court in 2016. But hey, it's Cobb, and you've gotta know your audience.

This is a stand-alone performance. Opening acts will be announced soon.

Tickets for the show range from $54.50 to $104.50, and $139.50, and go on sale to the general public on Fri., Jan. 13 at 10 a.m. via Ticketmaster.com or by calling 800-745-3000.
