On Wednesday morning, the Cincinnati Reds and Live Nation announced that Billy Joel, 70, will be playing at Great American Ball Park for the first time ever on September 11, 2020.
Hamilton County Commissioner Denise Driehaus said Joel's concert will have a significant economic impact on the area.
The last time Joel played in Cincinnati was in 2016 at the Heritage Bank Center, formerly the U.S. Bank Arena. This concert marks Joel's first solo stadium show in Cincinnati.
