The Vanderbilt Programming Board, along with the Music Group, Speakers Committee and The VenUe, will bring “Billy Joel: An Evening of Questions and Answers … and a Little Bit of Music” to Vanderbilt University's Langford Auditorium Jan. 30 at 7:30 p.m.
Hit songs such as “Piano Man,” “Uptown Girl” and “We Didn’t Start the Fire” have made Joel one of the best-known musicians in the United States and around the world.
Joel’s music career took off with the release of his world-famous song “Piano Man” in 1973. Since then, he has become a six-time Grammy Award winner, including the Grammy Legend Award; been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame; has received the Billboard Century Award; and even has a park named after him in his hometown.
Joel’s songs topped the charts in the 1970s and 1980s but have not been limited to reaching people in those decades, touching millions over the years. According to Joel, his songs “meant something during the time in which I lived … and transcended that time.”
Joel will share with Vanderbilt students, faculty and staff details of his life and career and will perform just a few of his greatest works.
This event is ONLY for the Vanderbilt community. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m., and admission is $15 for students and $30 for faculty and staff.
