The new and improved Nassau Coliseum is opening its doors in April and they are bringing in probably the best person to lead the welcoming committee.

Billy Joel is set to open the Nassau Coliseum in April with a live gig.

Coming off a steady string of monthly sellouts at Madison Square Garden (over 30 to date and still going strong), this man knows how to pack a house, especially this one. He played the Coliseum over 30 times, including a string of nine straight sellouts nearly 20 years and in fact sold the Coliseum out for its final show last year before it closed its doors.

Now next on the Coliseum’s to-do list: Please bring the New York Islanders back home! Reason why? Among the many, so we can hopefully see moments like this again!
