Crystal raises the curtain on Bill Joel concert production

Crystal raises the curtain on Bill Joel concert production
Crystal Cruises will showcase the multi-platinum hits of Grammy Award recipient and Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee, Billy Joel, as 'My Life: The Music of Billy Joel' debuts aboard Crystal Serenity on the Nov. 19 voyage from Miami to Caldera.

Passengers aboard the preceding cruise get a special viewing at the end of their voyage.

The show stars James Fox, who was handpicked by Billy Joel to appear as 'The Piano Man' in the Broadway, West End and US National Tour productions of 'Movin’ Out,' based on Joel’s music.

At the concert grand piano on the Galaxy Lounge’s stage, Fox will perform more than a dozen hits including 'New York State of Mind,' 'Uptown Girl,' 'She’s Always a Woman to Me' and 'Piano Man.' The Galaxy Orchestra and other Crystal musicians, vocalists and dancers will be featured alongside Fox.

The 'Rocket Man' Elton John tribute show will premiere aboard Crystal Symphony during the Feb. 24 round-trip Singapore cruise.

The shows are the beginnings of Crystal’s Concert Production series.
