Madison Square Garden Entertainment announced today that music icon Billy Joel has added an eighth show at Madison Square Garden on Thursday, August 7, 2014, as part of the Time Warner Cable Concert Series. The performance is part of Joel's franchise run at The World's Most Famous Arena.

Earlier this month, Madison Square Garden announced that Joel became The Garden's first-ever music franchise.

The seven previously announced shows -- January 27, February 3, March 21, April 18, May 9, June 21, July 2 show -- are sold out. Prices range from $64.50 to $124.50. The concerts are being promoted by MSG Entertainment in association with AEG Live and Q104.3.

Billy Joel is one of the highest grossing touring artists in the world. Having sold more than 150 million records over the past quarter century, Joel ranks as one of most popular recording artists and respected entertainers in history. The singer/songwriter/composer is the sixth best-selling recording artist of all time and the third best-selling solo artist. Earlier this month, Joel received The Kennedy Center Honors, one of the United States' top cultural awards.
