Billy Joel

The erstwhile angry young man—since 2014, an official Madison Square Garden franchise, like the Knicks and Rangers—is tacking on date after date in what’s threatening to become an endless run.

Home Alone in Concert

Home Alone in Concert

The New York Philharmonic performs John Williams’s score during this festive screening. If you’ve ever wanted to feel refined while snickering at lines like “I wouldn’t let you sleep in my room if you were growing on my ass” or watching a little kid literally torture grown men, here’s your chance.

If you're still feeling the sting from the last-minute cancellation of Phish's Curveball festival this past August, fear not, the Vermont quartet's annual New Year's run at the Garden is unlikely to likewise become a casualty of severe weather. (Knock on wood.) The tireless jam band has played the venue upwards up 50 times, making it part of an elite club that includes Billy Joel, Elton John and the Grateful Dead. Couple that level of experience with the outfit's notoriously eye-popping shows and you're basically guaranteed to enjoy your trip at—um, we mean to the Garden.
