The Piano Man is coming to the park.
Billy Joel will play a concert at Fenway Park in June, Live Nation announced on Thursday.
Joel, a six-time Grammy award winner who has sold more than 150 million albums worldwide, will perform June 26. It will be his first solo headlining performance in Boston in five years.
