Billy Joel wants to tell you about it

If you’ve got an Uptown Girl who loves the BJ then you better Tell Her About It, because he’s playing the Amway tonight. In a complete flip from some of the other New Year’s events happening just up the street (see: White Trash Bash) there will be a little less binge and a lot more boogie at this musical celebration of putting the mess of 2014 behind us and two-stepping into 2015. We’re guessing the concert won’t last until midnight, so we suggest leaving your car in the garage and just hopping up to the 180 Grey Goose Lounge for the NYE Rise Above party: For $100 you can enjoy an all-inclusive drink bundle while admiring the Orlando skyline with your date. If that’s too expensive for your taste, don’t blame us, We Didn’t Start the Fire. Har. 

9:30 p.m. Wednesday | Amway Center, 400 W. Church St. | 407-440-7000 | | $150
