The Billy Joel songbook performed by Elio Pace and his band comes to Theatre Severn

In 2013 and again in 2014, Elio was invited to ‘fill Billy Joel’s shoes’, starring in five very special reunion concerts in the USA with Joel’s original 1971-72 touring band, recreating the historic Sigma Sounds live recordings.

This incredible honour inspired Elio to fulfil a lifetime ambition of creating a theatre show showcasing the wonderful songbook of the six-time Grammy award winner, Billy Joel. And so, 'The Billy Joel songbook performed by Elio Pace and his band’ was born.

Elio took to the road in 2014 with the first ever Billy Joel Songbook national theatre tour anywhere in the world, enthralling audiences at 70 venues around the UK and Ireland. With Billy Joel choosing to perform a mere one or two international shows every few years, there are many fans out there that have never had the opportunity to hear his music live.

'The Billy Joel Songbook’, packed with over 30 of Joel's hits and fan favourites, will give everyone a fantastic opportunity to hear his wonderful songbook played and sung by the brilliant Elio Pace and his magnificent 6-piece band.

Elio and the band were featured by Sky Sports in their TV and online coverage of the 2015 Ashes cricket tournament with a specially re-written version of Billy Joel’s ‘We Didn’t Start The Fire’.

Now in its third year, the 2016 Billy Joel Songbook theatre tour has once again been booked to play at over 50 venues this year all over the UK.
