Has your Uptown Girl been putting the Pressure on you to take her out for a night on the town for The Longest Time? Well, we've got some Surprises for you, Big Shot. The Piano Man himself, Billy Joel is Movin' Out his Baby Grand to Petco Park for The Entertainer's only California show of 2016. And you don't need to be The Last of the Big-Time Spenders to go, with tickets running from $53.75 to $133.75 when they go on sale at 10 a.m. on January 22.

Some may consider Joel a bit of a downgrade after hosting Paul McCartney, The Rolling Stones, and Taylor Swift, but It's Still Rock and Roll to Me. The last few concerts hosted at the ballpark have left the field in Shades of Grey, but it will be resurfaced between the concert and the All-Star Game, so there's no need to be an Angry Young Man about it. Instead, focus on baseball and Keeping the Faith.
