OLG Stage at Fallsview Casino
Niagara Falls, Ontario
February 25, 2023
The night of February 25th is a night many Billy Joel fans will remember for some time. That’s when the Piano Man came to Canada to play the Grand Opening of Canada’s newest and largest soft-seat venue located in Niagara Falls – The OLG Stage at Fallsview Casino!
Prior to the show was a ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially open The OLG Stage. On hand for the ceremony was Devo Brown from Breakfast Television, along with Richard Taylor (President of Niagara Casinos), Joseph Soper, Mohegan Tribal Councilor and Management Board Member, Jim Diodati, Mayor of the City of Niagara Falls, Jim Warren, Chair of the Board of Directors, Ontario Lottery and Gaming, and Jody Madigan, COO, Mohegan.
By the time Billy Joel came on stage just after 8 PM, nearly every seat in the 5000-seat venue was filled. Joel kept the crowd entertained with many hit songs and stories throughout the night.
