Billy Joel speaks at a news conference at Madison Square Garden, on Dec. 3, 2013 in New York.

Musical legend Billy Joel will be coming to Consol Energy Center on Feb. 21 for the first time at the Uptown venue, Consol officials announced Dec 4.

Six-time Grammy winner Joel, a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, performed 12 times at the Civic Arena, including on April 18, 2008, and a joint show with Elton John on March 7, 2003.

On Dec. 3, Joel, 64, announced plans to perform once a month at New York City's Madison Square Garden — as long as the fans will have him. He's already set to perform sold-out shows there on Jan. 27, Feb. 3, March 21 and April 28.

Tickets for the Pittsburgh show go on sale at 10 a.m. Dec. 13; a pre-sale for American Express cardholders will be held Dec. 9. Tickets are $52 to $125.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
