A Billy Joel show at Madison Square Garden is being rescheduled due to New York Knicks and New York Rangers playoff games at the arena next week.

Joel and the Garden announced Saturday that his April 22 show has been moved to April 25 "due to New York Rangers playoffs."

The Rangers will face the New Jersey Devils in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The first two games will be played Tuesday and Thursday at the Prudential Center, and Game 3 will be played April 22, the original date of Joel's show, at MSG.

That left the parties no choice but to move the concert to Tuesday night.

So it's going to be a busy five-day stretch at 4 Penn Plaza, which goes as follows, in case you need a recap: Knicks playoffs Friday, Rangers playoffs April 22, Knicks playoffs April 23, Rangers playoffs April 24 and Billy Joel concert April 25.

The concert will be Joel's 136th at MSG and his 65th since the start of his residency there in 2014 that was briefly paused due to COVID-19.
