“It’s an evening of questions and answers….and a little music too. I’m bringing my guitar player, my bass player and my sax player. They’ll bring some colour, 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 colours. I think that format is great, it works well,” said Billy Joel.

Additionally, SiriusXM will air a special show, Billy Joel A to Z, featuring Joel walking listeners through each of his studio recordings in alphabetical order.
