Billy Joel has postponed his January 14 residency show at New York’s Madison Square Garden due to the recent surge in COVID.
Per Joel’s official website, the January 14 show has now been rescheduled for August 24, 2022. In a personal statement, Joel said “Nothing is more important to me than the safety and well-being of my band, crew, and the fans; so due to unfortunate COVID-related circumstances, we made the decision to reschedule the January 14th concert at MSG.”
Tickets for the January date will be honored for the new date in August. However, Joel’s website noted, “If you cannot commit to the rescheduled show date, you can request a refund anytime over the next 30 days, beginning today. If a refund is not requested during the allotted time, tickets will automatically be transferred to the rescheduled show date. To obtain a refund for tickets purchased through Ticketmaster, visit your Ticketmaster account page. For refunds on tickets purchased through the Madison Square Garden Box Office, call the MSG Guest Relations department at 212-465-6225.”
Furthermore, Joel’s site detailed, “Only tickets purchased directly through Ticketmaster or the Madison Square Garden Box Office are eligible for a refund. If tickets were purchased from a third party, ticketholders will need to go back to their point of purchase to determine refund availability.”
