SiriusXM announced today that legendary musician Billy Joel will sit down for a special SiriusXM event at the Faena Theater in Miami Beach, on Thursday, December 5. The exclusive event will broadcast live on Joel’s SiriusXM channel, The Billy Joel Channel.
Billy Joel: An Evening of Questions and Answers…and a little music too will feature the legendary musician sitting in front of a piano taking questions from SiriusXM subscribers in the audience. Additionally, SiriusXM subscribers will be able to call-in to the live event at (844)-365-BILLY (2455) and ask Billy Joel a question. Joel will also be sharing stories behind his music as well as performing portions of songs in between conversation.
“It’s an evening of questions and answers….and a little music too. I’m bringing my guitar player, my bass player, and my sax player. They’ll bring some color, which will sound better on the radio. If the opportunity to do a song presents itself, and it’s the right song at the right time, it’s nice to have the colors. I think that format is great, it works well,” said Billy Joel.
“Miami Beach has been the home for some great nights with iconic entertainers, and another one is coming that way in Billy Joel, a master performer, and a great storyteller. Our event for subscribers takes us back to an intimate setting in the heart of Miami Beach at the Faena Theater for a special night of storytelling and a little music, too,” said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SiriusXM.
