Billy Joel will sit down for a special SiriusXM event at the Faena Theater in Miami Beach, Florida on Dec. 5. Billy Joel: An Evening of Questions and Answers…and a little music too will feature the legendary musician sitting in front of a piano taking questions from SiriusXM subscribers in the audience.

SiriusXM subscribers will be able to call in to the live event at (844)-365-BILLY (2455) and ask Billy Joel a question. Joel will also be sharing stories behind his music as well as performing portions of songs in between conversation.

“It’s an evening of questions and answers…and a little music too,” said Joel in a release. “I’m bringing my guitar player, my bass player and my sax player. They’ll bring some color, which will sound better on the radio. If the opportunity to do a song presents itself, and it’s the right song at the right time, it’s nice to have the colors. I think that format is great, it works well.”

The exclusive event will broadcast live on Joel’s SiriusXM channel, The Billy Joel Channel, at 8pm ET on Dec. 5. The limited-run channel that features the works of the iconic superstar including music spanning his 5 decades-long career along with exclusive stories from Joel will run through Dec. 6 at 3am ET.

“Miami Beach has been the home for some great nights with iconic entertainers, and another one is coming that way in Billy Joel, a master performer and a great story teller,” said SiriusXM president and chief content officer Scott Greenstein in a release. “Our event for subscribers takes us back to an intimate setting in the heart of Miami Beach at the Faena Theater for a special night of storytelling and a little music, too.”

SiriusXM subscribers will have the opportunity to win tickets to this private SiriusXM & Pandora event through an invitation sent by e-mail to qualified subscribers. Pandora fans will have a similar opportunity based upon their listening histories.
