The Philadelphia Phillies and Live Nation announced Thursday that legendary recording artist Billy Joel will return to Citizens Bank Park this summer as part of his coast-to-coast ballpark tour. Joel, who performed to sell-out crowds at the Philadelphia ballpark in August 2014 and '15, is the first artist to perform three years in a row in the venue's history.
The July 9 show will be Joel's fifth at Citizens Bank Park, and it also sets the record for live performances by any artist at the ballpark.
