CBS said it will rebroadcast Billy Joel’s 100th consecutive broadcast performance at Madison Square Garden after it was cut short for some viewers on Sunday.

Joel was in the middle of singing “Piano Man” when local news started in some parts of the country.

“Due to overwhelming demand from his legion of fans,” Joel’s performance, filmed on March 28, will re-air in its entirety on April 19 at 9pm ET. Fans can also watch Joel’s performance on Paramount+.

“A timing error in network programming ended last night’s Billy Joel special approximately two minutes early in the Eastern and Central time zones,” CBS vice president of communications Julie Holland said in a statement. “We apologize to Mr. Joel, his fans, our member stations and our audiences whose viewing experience was interrupted during the final song.”

Joel performed some of his biggest hits during the performance, including “New York State of Mind” and his new single “Turn the Lights Back On.” Sting joined Joel at the concert to perform “Big Man on Mulberry Street”. Joel also released Jerry Seinfeld.

Sunday’s special started later the 2024 Masters tournament.

The singer has performed a record number of times at Madison Square Garden. He will perform there for the last time in July 2024.
