Billy Joel is known for his record-setting run at New York's Madison Square Garden. But a rival venue is about to honor him with bobbleheads.
The New York Islanders, who play at Nassau Coliseum, will hold Billy Joel Night on December 15th. The NHL team will give away Billy Joel bobbleheads to the first 10,000 fans arriving for their game with the Detroit Red Wings. The team will also play Billy's music during breaks in the action.
It will also serve as a teaser for the Piano Man's December 31st show, his 34th at the arena near his boyhood home on Long Island. The bobblehead depicts Billy in an Islanders uniform, wearing, not surprisingly, number-34.
Billy continues his residency at Madison Square Garden in Manhattan. He has performed 57 consecutive monthly shows, and a career total of 102. (NHL.com)
