As a piano-playing pop star, Gavin DeGraw has often cited Billy Joel as one of his biggest influences. Now, he's getting a chance to share the stage with his hero.
Gavin will open up for Billy Tuesday night in Sunrise, Florida -- it's a special one-off gig that he's doing while prepping for his own tour, which starts in February. On Twitter, he wrote, "One does not simply open up for @BillyJoel on Jan 7th in Sunrise FL and not tell anyone! See you all there!!"
In other Billy Joel news, the Piano Man has announced yet another new tour date: he'll perform at Toronto's Air Canada Centre on March 9. It'll mark his first solo headlining show there since 2007.
