The Billy Joel Songbook, performed by Elio Pace and his band, comes to The Capitol, Horsham, on Saturday, September 12 ( 7.30pm).
In 2013 and again in 2014, Elio was invited to ‘fill Billy Joel’s shoes’, starring in five very special reunion concerts in the USA with Joel’s original 1971-72 touring band, recreating the historic Sigma Sounds live recordings.
This inspired Elio to fulfil a lifetime ambition of creating a production to showcase the wonderful songbook of the six-time Grammy award winner.
And so, The Billy Joel Songbook, performed by Elio Pace and his band, was born.
Last year, with Billy Joel’s blessing, Elio took to the road with the first ever Billy Joel national theatre tour anywhere in the world, enthralling audiences at 70 venues around the UK and Ireland.
With Billy Joel’s reluctance to tour anymore, there are many fans that have never had the opportunity to hear his music live.
The Billy Joel Songbook, packed with more than 30 of Joel’s hits and fan favourites, will give everyone a fantastic chance to hear his work, played and sung by the brilliant Elio Pace and his magnificent six-piece band.
Tickets cost £20 (concessions £18, friends £19).
