Tickets will go on sale Saturday (December 2nd, 2006) for a run of Billy Joel dates in the Southern US in February and March. Joel will sing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl in Miami, Florida on February 4th, 2007, and the tour starts February 7th, 2007 at the Jacksonville (Florida) Arena.
This isn’t the first time. Billy Joel sang the national anthem at SuperBowl XXIII in 1989.
