One of the most famous venues in the world, Madison Square Garden is an indoor arena located in Midtown Manhattan, New York. Although the name has existed since 1879, when it was located in another part of town, the famous MSG in Manhattan has existed since 1964. Besides Rock and Roll concerts, the arena can also host professional ice hockey, professional basketball, boxing, circuses, wrestling and many other kinds of events.
In 2024 besides many basketball matches, Madison Square Garden will also have many legendary Rock stars, including Billy Joel. The musician recently revealed the final date of his MSG residency that’s been going on for years. The final show, which will be the 150th one, will happen in 2024.
Besides the American singer and pianist, there are bands like Tool and Pantera with scheduled shows. The place can accommodate more than 19.000 fans.
Since 2014 the singer and pianist Billy Joel has been performing at Madison Square Garden regularly. In 2024 he will perform from January to July, one time each month, until he completes his show number 150 there.
Another band already played there a few times that will also be in the Garden again in January is Tool. The Progressive Metal band will perform tracks from their entire career, including the most recent album “Fear Inoculum” in 2019. The group is formed by Maynard James Keenan (Vocals), Adam Jones (Guitars), Danny Carey (Drums) and Justin Chancellor (Bass).
Besides Billy Joel again, Madison Square Garden will also have Pantera‘s reunion tour. The Texan Metal group reunited in 2022 with the two classic members Phil Anselmo (Vocals) and Rex Brown (Bass). Since the brothers Dimebag Darrell (Guitar) and Vinnie Paul (Drums), who were the founding members of the band, have already passed away, they now have Zakk Wylde on guitar and Charlie Benante on drums.
Their setlist has songs from all classic albums and the American band Lamb of God will be their opening act.
Another American Rock group that will perform at Madison Square Garden in March is Fall Out Boy. Formed in Wilmette, Illinois back in 2001, the Pop Punk group achieved fame in the early 00s. They already have 8 studio albums out, the most recent one being “So Much (for) Stardust” released in 2023.
The group is currently formed by Patrick Stump (Vocals, guitar), Pete Wentz (Bass), Andy Hurley (Drums) and Joe Trohman (Guitar).
From April to June, the only Rock and Roll concerts which will happen at the Madison Square Garden will be by Billy Joel. He was born in New York City in 1949 and lived in Long Island for a long time, but he enlisted his mansion for sale this year.
Since the last studio album released by him was in 2001, his setlist will have classics from his entire career.
The last Rock and Roll band scheduled to perform at MSG in 2024 so far is Mt. Joy. The Alternative Rock band was formed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 2016 and has three albums: “Mt. Joy” (2018), “Rearrange Us” (2020) and “Orange Blood” (2022).
The group is formed by Matt Quinn (Vocals, guitar), Sam Cooper (Guitar), Sotiris Eliopoulos (Drums), Jackie Miclau (Keyboards, piano) and Michael Byrnes (Bass).
I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
