HI....just wondering did anyone order tickets through the Yankees for season ticket holders for Billy Joel at Madison Square Garden? If so , did you get your tickets...we are waiting. Called the Yankees who told me to call TIcketmaster and they had no clue. THought we would have gotten them by now...

I sent it to one of my friends who wanted them and she faxed it in the day that I got the Email. She still hasn't heard anything.

Ticketmaster for whatever reason does not send the tickets out until a few weeks prior to the show. I ordered tickets to two shows (2/2 at MSG and 3/10 at Hartford) and haven't received them. The 2/2 ones I got on Nov. 19. I wouldn't worry.

I haven't heard anything and I bought 8 tickets through that pre-order thing. Hopefully we will hear something soon (I heard we will find about by 12/23, which is this Friday)

BUMP...anyone else find out anything about the pre-order of Billy Joel tickets exclusive to Yankee ticket holders? I guess they were supposed to let us know by Dec 23, but I haven't heard anything yet.

Haven't heard anything, either. What a bizarre way to handle tickets. I'm starting to think it would have just been easier to go through ticketmaster when they added new shows. I got a pair for my wife as part of her Christmas present and two days after Xmas I still don't know where the seats are, what show they will be for, or if the tickets have even been processed.

Just to let you know, we checked our online credit card account and the tickets were just charged to our account We are hoping to get then soon and they better be good seats. ALso can't wait to find out which show they are for.

Thanks for the update. Again, what an odd way to handle things. It's 26 days before the first show and we still have no idea where our seats are -- or even if the Jan. 23 show is the one we are attending.

Update for NYYJeter2: I received my tickets today. They are for the show on Monday, Feb. 27, and they are at the far end of the floor, Section 36.

We got our tickets today too...our tickets are for March 2nd...section 225...we sat around there for Elton John and they were pretty good....We saw John and Joel last year as they did a tour together. It was a great show, and Joel particularly had a lot of energy and sang well....considering his age and his obvious disregard for the well-being of his liver.

Thanks for sharing. That's pretty funny that you felt it necessary to write that post in a thread that was obviously for Billy Joel fans -- or in my case, the husband of a Billy Joel fan.
In fact, just to show how clever I am, I think I'll go interrupt the Creed thread in Just Conversation.

Looks like a good list.

I agree, I think anyone that is really into Billy Joel and listens to all his music will love it. The ones though that are looking for Just the Way You Are and the hits may be a bit lost.
