SENSATIONAL SHOW CELEBRATING THE MUSIC OF BILLY JOEL

THE BILLY JOEL SONGBOOK

Congress Theatre, Eastbourne – Tuesday 20 September, 7.30pm

Following last year’s sell-out UK tour in the acclaimed production The Billy Joel Songbook, which pays homage to one of the most iconic musicians, singer-songwriters, and composers of the 20th Century, comes to Eastbourne’s Congress Theatre on Tuesday 20 September, 7.30pm.

Join Elio Pace and his incredible band as they celebrate the legendary US musician in this show which blends pop, rhythm and blues, jazz and rock ‘n’ roll.

The band wowed audiences across the UK in 2021 and such was the demand for tickets this year’s shows will mark the biggest ever tour. Once again, audiences will be transported through a catalogue of Joel’s music with more than 30 hits including The Longest Time, She’s Always A Woman, An Innocent Man, Uptown Girl, Tell Her About It, The River of Dreams, We Didn’t Start The Fire and Piano Man.

Excited to get back on the road, Elio said: The music of Billy Joel is timeless. He is a genius composer and, in my humble opinion, the greatest singer/songwriter of all-time. I really do feel humbled that so many people want to see us perform his music.”

Singer-songwriter, piano-player, producer and arranger, Elio has performed with an array of stars including Brian May, Huey Lewis, Glen Campbell, Gilbert O’Sullivan, Lulu, Mike Rutherford, Don McLean, Tom Chaplin, Debbie Reynolds and Martha Reeves.

In 2013 and 2014 he 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. Following on from the huge success of these American shows, Elio embarked upon the debut tour of The Billy Joel Songbook selling out theatres across the UK.

And in 2019 Elio’s sensational concert film of the show The Billy Joel Songbook Live won a prestigious award at the 17th Annual Independent Music Awards for ‘Best Overall Long Form Music Video’ in New York.
