NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) – Piano Man Billy Joel will return to New Orleans in early 2017.

The show, set for February 10 at the Smoothie King Center, is one of only five shows Joel is playing next year.

This will be the entertainer’s first solo stadium show in New Orleans since 2007, although he did make it back to town for a Jazz Fest show in 2013.

Tickets will be available through TicketMaster, and are expected to sell out quickly.
