Billy Joel to headline F1 concert at Circuit of the Americas


AUSTIN (KXAN) — Grammy award-winning musician Billy Joel will headline the concert held October 23 in conjunction with the Formula 1 Aramco United States Grand Prix at Circuit of the Americas.

COTA officials made the announcement Thursday. Billy Joel hasn’t performed in Austin since the 1990s, a press release from COTA said.

More acts for the concert will be announced in May, officials said. The United States Grand Prix, called off last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, is a three-day event set for October 22-24.
