Speaking about The Billy Joel Songbook, Elio explained: “We all get such a buzz touring this show so we absolutely cannot wait to get back out on the road.
“We have an amazing tour in place returning to theatres while also visiting some for the first time, and to be starting in my hometown and then ending in London’s West End is going to be pretty incredible.
“The music of Billy Joel is timeless. He is a genius composer and, in my humble opinion, the greatest singer/songwriter of all-time. I really do feel humbled that so many people want to see us perform his music.
“We can’t wait to celebrate this incredible music once again and we’ll now look forward to travelling across the country next spring.”
The show will be at Newcastle’s O2 City Hall on Saturday, March 30 2024, with tickets for the show on sale from 10am this Friday, September 1.
The Billy Joel Songbook show is billed as ‘the greatest love letter ever to the genius that is Billy Joel’ and will take the audience through the catalogue of Billy Joel’s music.
