Retirement doesn’t become Billy Joel.

Weeks after announcing his open-ended residency at New York’s Madison Square Garden, Joel has been adding tour dates that take him well beyond the reach of the Long Island Railroad.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and recent Kennedy Center Honore has announced concerts in Cleveland, Louisville, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Chicago. A press release announcing the Chi-town show at Wrigley Field trumpets the fact that “the first time a musical artist has made a return appearance to the storied ballpark.”

While Joel said that each of his Madison Square Garden shows would be “unique,” it’s more likely that his shows outside of the Empire State will be more conventional “greatest hits” concerts.
