Legendary musician Billy Joel is returning to Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood for the first time in 11 years, as he is set to perform at Hard Rock Live on Friday, Jan. 10, at 8 p.m. Hard Rock Live, Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood’s new entertainment venue, is part of the $1.5 billion property expansion that will be completed Oct. 25, 2019. The integrated resort will also be home to three hotel towers, including the world’s first and only iconic guitar hotel.

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, earning 33 consecutive Top 40 hits, Billy Joel ranks as one of most popular recording artists and respected entertainers in history.

The singer, songwriter and 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.”

Joel has received both The Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song which honors living musical artists’ lifetime achievement in promoting the genre of song as a vehicle of cultural understanding; entertaining and informing audiences; and inspiring new generations, as well as the once-in-a-century ASCAP Centennial Award, which is presented to American music icons in recognition of their incomparable accomplishments in their respective music genres and beyond.

Joel has also received The Kennedy Center Honors, one of the United States’ top cultural awards. He is the recipient of six Grammy Awards, including the prestigious Grammy Legend Award. Joel has been inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and has received numerous industry awards including a Tony Award for “Movin’ Out,” a Broadway musical based on Joel’s music.

Joel has performed alongside other music greats at two of Madison Square Garden’s most extraordinary benefit concerts – “12-12-12, The Concert For Sandy Relief,” which raised awareness and money for those affected by Hurricane Sandy and “The Concert for New York City,” which was held to help aid 9/11 victims and heroes. For his accomplishments as a musician and as a humanitarian, Joel was honored as the 2002 MusiCares Person of The Year by the MusiCares Foundation and the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences.
