KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Billy Joel will be coming to Kansas City for a concert at Kauffman Stadium.

The concert will take place Friday, Sept. 21 at 8 p.m. This performance will be Joel’s first ever stadium appearance in Kansas City and the first concert at Kauffman Stadium in 39 years.

Tickets start at $49.50 and go on sale to the general public Friday at 10 a.m. Ground-level tickets are available for $220. Tickets will be available at royals.com/billyjoel.

“Kauffman Stadium has hosted four World Series and an All-Star Game since its last concert in 1979,” Royals Senior Vice President of Business Operations Kevin Uhlich said. “We are extremely excited to once again bring live music back to our venue, and we can’t think of a better artist to do that than the ‘Piano Man’ himself, Billy Joel. This promises to be an extraordinary, once-in-a-lifetime concert."

Kansas City Royals season ticket holders will have the opportunity to purchase tickets on Wednesday before the general public.

Joel is one of the biggest concert draws in the world and continues this achievement with an impressive run of sold-out consecutive stadium shows and concert arenas. 

Having sold 150 million records over the past quarter-century, scoring 33 consecutive Top 40 hits, Joel ranks as one of most popular recording artists and respected entertainers in history.

The singer/songwriter/composer is the sixth best-selling recording artist of all time and the third best-selling solo artist.  

In 2016, the Library of Congress selected “Piano Man” for preservation in the National Recording Registry for its “cultural, historic, and artistic significance.”
