Mangano: Billy Joel To Play First Show At Newly Transformed Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum

Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano today announced that legendary musician Billy Joel will perform the first show at the new Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum on Wednesday, April 5, 2017, after the venue undergoes an extensive transformation.

“There’s no better performer suited to reopen the transformed Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum than Long Island’s own Billy Joel,” said County Executive Mangano. “Billy serves as an exciting reminder of entertainment our residents will enjoy at the Coliseum for generations to come.”

The April 5th show will be Joel’s 33rd show at the Coliseum. He sold out nine shows in 1998, setting the venue’s record for the most sellouts in one year. On August 4, 2015, Joel played the arena’s final show before it closed for renovations.

“It is an honor to welcome Billy Joel, the voice and pride of Long Island, home to the new Coliseum,” said Brett Yormark, CEO of Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment. “The Coliseum is entering its final phase of construction, encompassing the implementation of the exterior façade, and will soon be ready to rock again. April 5 is a celebration for Long Island and its spectacular venue, which will revive the area as a vibrant entertainment market.”

Tickets for the show will go on sale on Friday, October 14th at 10am and can be purchased online at www.ticketmaster.com, or by calling 800-745-3000. American Express Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public on Thursday, October 13th from 10am-10pm.
