Afterwards we will make our way to Hutchins Concert Hall for the evening’s performance of Piano Men: The Music of Elton and Billy.
More about the show…
Elton John and Billy Joel have sold more than 350 million records worldwide. For four decades, they have been a large part of the musical landscape, topping the album charts, playing to sold-out audiences, and receiving heavy airplay on classic rock radio. Since 1994, these two legendary performers have regularly been joining forces selling out their worldwide “Face-to-Face” tours.
Piano Men: The Music of Elton and Billy is a tribute to the amazing songs of Billy Joel and Elton John. The concert combines a four-piece pop group, featuring Maine’s own Joe Boucher on piano and vocals, playing with a full symphony orchestra. Rarely have these songs ever been heard live this way – Elton and Billy themselves have performed with orchestras on only a few occasions. Join us as we celebrate our 30th season with this very special collaboration with the Bangor Symphony Orchestra.
