Tickets on sale Jan. 14.

Having already sold out nine shows at Madison Square Garden in New York, Billy Joel will go for a record-tying 10th show, to go on sale Saturday.

Joel has sold out concerts at MSG for Jan. 23, 26, Feb. 2, 9, 11, 16, 25, 27, and March 2. The 10th show will be for March 4, and ties a record set by Bruce Springsteen in 2000.

Joel is selling 360 degrees on his current tour, his first as a solo headliner in nearly eight years. With a 19,000 capacity at the Garden shows, the total attendance will be about 190,000, and the gross could be north of $15.5 million.

The tour began Jan. 7 in Sunrise, Fla., and is selling out everywhere, with multiples in Philadelphia, Boston, and Hartford, Conn. (Billboard.biz, Dec. 6).
