Keyboard kings Elton John and Billy Joel have postponed their upcoming Albany concert – for the second time.
The Face 2 Face Tour was originally slated to roll into the Times Union Center on Monday, July 27, but it was postponed do to Billy Joel’s illness. After much delay, it was finally re-scheduled for Monday, December 7. Now that date has been cancelled, and the concert has been re-scheduled for next year.
According to Pollstar, “Illness is the culprit. At first it was only John’s health causing postponements of the tour’s first few dates. But almost as soon as John recovered from a bout of flu mixed with an E. coli infection, co-headline partner Joel took sick.”
The new date for the concert is Thursday, March 11, 2010 – which means that it will have been a full year since tickets first went on sale for the concert back in March, 2009.
