Mayor Buddy Dyer promised a major concert announcement at his press conference earlier today, and dropped the bombshell that Billy Joel will be playing Orlando early next year. 

The "Piano Man" will be playing us a song (well, many songs) at the Amway Center on January 27, 2017. Tickets are set to go on sale next Friday, Oct. 21, at 10 a.m.
