There were lots of rumours circulating last week of a big name coming to Syracuse University in 2015. There was talk that it could have been Paul McCartney or Taylor Swift however in the end it has been announced that Billy Joel will take the stage. The announcement was made this morning at the University, and with Joel playing this city six times in the past this will not be anything unfamiliar to the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer. Syracuse also has announced that a special “7” banner will be on display to commemorate the concert. The Carrier Dome has a capacity of 38, 242 and with tickets going on sale Saturday at 9am. Tickets can be purchased through Ticketmaster with prices from $59.50- $89.50. The last time Billy Joel played the Dome was back in 2006, to a sold out crowd.
