The Billy Joel Songbook hits Lincoln this week as part of a UK tour.
In 2013 and again in 2014, Elio Pace was invited to ‘fill Billy Joel’s shoes’, starring in five very special reunion concerts in the USA with Joel’s original 1971-72 touring band, recreating the historic Sigma Sounds live recordings.
This incredible honour inspired Elio to fulfil a lifetime ambition of creating a theatre show showcasing the wonderful songbook of the six-time Grammy award winner, Billy Joel.
And so, ‘The Billy Joel Songbook performed by Elio Pace and his band’ was born.
Last year, with Billy Joel’s blessing, Elio took to the road with the first ever Billy Joel national theatre tour anywhere in the world, enthralling audiences at 70 venues around the UK and Ireland.
With Billy Joel’s reluctance to tour the world anymore, there are many fans out there that have never had the opportunity to hear his music live.
‘The Billy Joel Songbook’, packed with over 30 of Joel’s hits and fan favourites, will give everyone a fantastic opportunity to hear his wonderful songbook played and sung by Elio Pace and his six-piece band and it will be at the Theatre Royal this Friday, April 10.
