Billy Joel and Stevie Nicks have just announced their eighth 2023 joint stadium show. The pair of Rock Hall of Famers will now play on November 10th at Minneapolis' U.S. Bank Stadium.
As it stands now, in addition to the just-announced Minnesota gig, Billy and Stevie are set for major stadium shows in California, Texas, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Missouri, and Massachusetts.
Billy Joel told us he feels lucky to still be performing at the top of his game these days: “I kind of have a split opinion about it. Part of me thinks it's absurd. I'm 73-years-old and I'm doin' the same gig I was doin' when I was 16. Y'know, this is a job for a young person and I am now considered elderly and I'm still doin' the same crazy-ass job — so, that part of it is kinda absurd. The other part of it to me is it's wonderful. I've picked a great job to have. They're payin' me all kinds of money, the audiences are bigger than they ever were, people are still comin' to see me — and there's a lot of young people out in the crowd, who somehow know my stuff and that's wonderful! I'm a lucky guy.”
Stevie Nicks believes the art of songwriting is an act of healing for both the creator and the listener: “To me, the music is writing songs and that is to be able to write something that maybe at a time in somebody else's life, they need a little help or a little inspiration, or something, that they would sit down and listen to something I wrote and it would just either make them feel a little better or they'd be able to go 'Somebody else's been there, too — and that helps me.'”
