In August 2015, Billy Joel played Nassau Coliseum’s final concert before the venue shut down for renovations. Now, the Long Island native will open the new Nassau Coliseum with a concert on April 5, 2017. Tickets to the highly anticipated concert sold out within just 5 minutes.
Brett Yormark, CEO of Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment, is overseeing the operations, programming, and marketing for the new venue. In a statement to CBS New York, Brett said “the Coliseum is entering its final phase of construction, encompassing the implementation of the exterior facade, and will soon be ready to rock again. April 5th is a celebration for Long Island and its spectacular venue, which will revive the area as a vibrant entertainment market.”
