‘It’s Still Rock and Roll To Me’ is one of Billy Joel’s most popular songs. It was the second single from his Grammy-winning 1980 album ‘Glass Houses’ and his first-ever song to top the Billboard Hot 100. To date, ‘Glass Houses’ has sold more than 7 million copies in the U.S.
After a prolonged absence from the road, Billy Joel has resumed performing. In addition to his monthly residency at New York’s Madison Square Garden, he will also play shows in Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Chicago this spring and summer.
