View Full Version : Billy Joel Face to Face Tour

03-23-2002, 12:53 PM
I heard Billy Joel had to cancel some of his Face to Face Concerts with Elton John due to an inflamed vocal cord. Is this a serious condition? Does anyone know? Is this condition painful?

I hope Bill is feeling better real soon!!!

Just maybe he visits PLANET GARTH. :)

Yes, he did postpone the tour. Some of the comments at the Madison Sq Garden concert was that Billy Joel seemed like he ingested a little too much cough syrup [to put it mildly]. So who knows.

Billy Joel and Elton John: Face To Face Tour
Tour Dates Rescheduled

Artist and building representatives have
rescheduled the Billy Joel and Elton John:
Face To Face concert dates in New York,
New Jersey, Boston and Tampa at the
earliest appropriate times (see
itinerary following). Billy Joel
is currently under doctor's supervision
and has been diagnosed with acute
laryngitis, inflamed vocal chords
and an acute upper respiratory infection.
In view of these findings, Billy Joel
has been advised by his doctors to
refrain from singing and will require
several weeks of voice rest.

"Being a New Yorker - and since it's
been so rough for all of us this past
year - I did not want to let my hometown
down. So, I tried to do the best I could
Friday night at the Garden," said Joel
following his Madison Square Garden on
March 15. "I pushed it more that I
should have and, unfortunately, I now
have to try to reschedule all of our
remaining New York and New Jersey concerts.
I have been assured by my doctors that I
will make a complete recovery and will
be able to give the audience 100 percent
and perform the kick-ass show that Elton
and I have been doing on this tour."

I have some of his "Hits-Albums" (including one Live-Album). Heīs a great singer and surely even a great entertainer. I loved to see him perform with Garth at Central Park.
Billy has class. Gets better as older as he gets.

If he would come along, where I live I would visit his concert. Thatīs for sure!

Didn't the last tour they did together get cancelled as well?
