Billy Joel breaks record for most shows by any artist at Madison Square Garden

NEW YORK -- Billy Joel has broken the record for most shows by any artist at Madison Square Garden.

The Piano Man played his 65th show at Madison Square Garden, the 19th of his Time Warner Cable Concert Series.

Wednesday night's show broke Elton John's record for the most performances by any artist at the venue.

The show makes Joel the first musician to simultaneously hold both of The Garden's concert-related performance records: Longest Run of Any Artist and Most Number of Performances By Any Artist.
