Billy Joel is set to headline London’s Hyde Park for the 10th anniversary of the British Summer Time festival next year.

The US singer-songwriter, 73, will take to the stage on 7 July.

The Piano Man’s performance at British Summer Time (BST) will be his only European appearance in 2023.

And it's thought to be the first time that the star - whose other songs include the massive hits We Didn’t Start The Fire and Uptown Girl - has played in the UK in around five years.
