Hitmaker and “Big Shot” Billy Joel is “Movin' Out” of his monthly Madison Square Garden residency for just a moment to deliver his largest capacity metro Detroit concert in 25 years.

It was announced Friday that the 70-year-old non-firestarter
has plotted a performance at Detroit's Comerica Park next year. The concert, slated for Friday, July 10, marks his first solo stadium visit to the area.



Joel frequented the now-shuttered Palace of Auburn Hills, where he last visited in 2014 with a sold-out performance. His last formal stadium visit, however, was in 1994 at Pontiac's Silverdome when he shared a stage with Elton John as part of their dueling co-headlining Face to Face tour, which also sold out because, well, duh.

Tickets go on sale starting Friday, Nov. 15, at 10 a.m. and can be purchased by visiting Tigers.com/BillyJoel as well as Ticketmaster.com.
