Billy Joel Cancels Concerts Due To The Flu

Billy Joel has had to cancel a second show due to coming down with the flu.

The Piano Man was due to play at the HSBC Arena in Buffalo, New York on July 24th, along with tonight’s concert at Times Union Center in Albany, New York, but has had to cancel the performances due to illness.


He was set to perform alongside Elton John for the concerts. His doctors have advised him not to perform for 72 hours due to his “extreme fatigue”.

Both venues are reportedly working on rescheduling the shows. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.

His next show is on July 30, 2009 at Citizens Bank Ballpark in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
