Late Night FDL: Big Shot

Billy Joel – Big Shot

Billy will be playing his 32nd gig at Nassau…

New York’s famed Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum will soon undergo a major renovation to update its facilities, but before that happens, it’ll get one final concert—from Billy Joel.

Joel will play the coliseum on Aug. 4 for its final show before a year-long renovation that, at the moment, will see it reopen in December 2016, the singer announced via his website.

The show will mark quite a bit of familiarity for those who have been attending concerts there in the past; the concert will mark Joel’s 32nd show there, though he hasn’t performed at Nassau Coliseum in a solo capacity since 1998—at which point he sold out nine shows there in a year, a banner still hanging in the rafters denoting the achievement.

Working the last nite of my work week, I’ll see y’all tomorrow nite…! Mahalo…!
