Fourteen years ago he was the first act to play…Caesars Windsor’s new 5,000-seat theatre. And in three months, Billy Joel will play the grand opening of the new 5,000-seat OLG Stage at Fallsview Casino.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member and one of the biggest-selling artists in the world will perform Feb. 25 at the $130-million venue.

Richard Taylor, president of Niagara Casinos, said Joel coming to Niagara Falls shows how the new theatre will “enhance the entertainment landscape of Niagara.”

Ray Pinneault, chief executive officer and president of Mohegan — the service provider for the city’s two casinos — said Joel and Mohegan have a longstanding relationship.
