Billy Joel Tapped as Presenter at Tony Awards
Billy Joel will be one of the presenters at this Sunday night’s June 10 Tony Awards telecast, it was announced today.
Joel–who won the Tony for Best Orchestrations for Movin’ Out, the hit Broadway musical based on his songs, in 2003-joins a list of presenters that includes Robert De Niro, Katharine McPhee, Jim Parsons, Patti LuPone, Kerry Washington, Jeff Daniels, Amy Schumer, Tina Fey, Mikhail Baryshnikov and Christine Baranks.
As for whom Joel will be presenting to, we can only speculate he is the chosen one to award fellow musician Bruce Springsteen with a special Tony. Springsteen will receive the award for his “Springsteen on Broadway” run of shows.
Springsteen will be in Asbury Park at Asbury Lanes June 18 for a special show celebrating the grand reopening of the venue. Portugal, the Man and Tangiers Blues Bands are also scheduled to appear at the concert, which benefits The Boys and Girls Clubs.
