Early on Thursday morning, the Baltimore Orioles announced that Billy Joel will play the first concert ever at Oriole Park at Camden Yards
Baltimore Orioles vice president John Angelos announced today that six-time Grammy winner Billy Joel will perform the first-ever concert at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. Angelos also announced the Orioles Entertainment division.
This concert is in partnership with Live Nation events. Another great thing about this concert is that the Orioles Charitable Foundation will donate a portion of the proceeds to support music and arts education programs for kids in Maryland and across the team’s regional territories.
Tickets to the concert go on sale on January 18th at 10 a.m at ticketmaster.com. If you are an American Express card member, you will have access to tickets from Jan. 14-17 and Orioles season plan holders will be granted access between 10 a.m. Jan. 16 and 10 p.m. Jan. 17.
What a way to kick off the New Year for the Baltimore Orioles organization and for the Angelos family. It definitely looks like John and Louis Angelos are now running the Orioles and it shows, with the recent hiring’s of Mike Elias, Sig Mejdal, and Brandon Hyde.
To add an Orioles Entertainment division is a great business move to attract an even bigger audience to the city of Baltimore, and to the Orioles organization. This should be the start of a very successful Entertainment division for the Orioles.
Billy Joel is the first prize, then who knows? Taylor Swift in a 2-night concert series: the first night at M&T Bank Stadium and the second at Camden Yards – how awesome would that be?
I could also see Oriole Park at Camden Yards hosting Stadiumlinks in the near future. Stadiumlinks transforms baseball stadiums into golf courses. Wouldn’t it be great to hit a golf ball from the new center field seating area to home plate?
The Baltimore Orioles organization is now in good hands with John and Louis Angelos running the show. They know how important it is to bring tourists and fans back to the ballpark and Billy Joel will be doing that. Downtown Baltimore has seen some struggles lately, but I have a feeling that things will be changing very soon.
Are you excited to see what John and Louis Angelos have in store for the Orioles Entertainment division? What other ideas/concerts would you propose to the brothers to bring to Camden Yards in the near future?
