    The piano man is coming back to South Florida.

    Billy Joel will perform for one night at the BB&T Center on Jan. 7. It is his first in South Florida since 2009.

    Last week six-time Grammy winner Joel performed in Long Island, the first time in 11years that he had the stage there.

    He also appeared at New York 12-12-12 concert for Hurricane Sandy victims.

    Joel has sold more than 150 million albums worldwide.In December, Billy Joel will receive The Kennedy Center Honor.

    The award is the nation's highest honor for those who influence American culture through the arts. President Barack Obama hosts the honorees at the White House, and Secretary of State John Kerry hosts a dinner in their honor.

    Top entertainers will salute the honorees in a gala performance Dec. 8 to be broadcast Dec. 29 on CBS.

    This is the first year of a revised selection process after a group last year said the Kennedy Center had long excluded Latinos from the prize.

    Tickets to Joel's South Florida performance go on sale to the public on Nov. 2 at 10 a.m. They are available through Ticketmaster or by phone (800-745-3000). Tickets will also be available at the BB&T Center box office.
