Elton and his band are doing two shows at New York City's Madison Square Garden this week, tonight and tomorrow evening.
Meanwhile, one of his past touring partners is to make ''a major announcement for 2014'' this morning.
As of this writing, Billy Joel's hour-long press conference had yet to begin. However, it's been revealed that some special guests, including ''MSG Legends,'' are to be in attendance.
The host is Q104.3's Jim Kerr of the station's Rock & Roll Morning Show, and the event will run live on Fuse. It is also being streamed on both the Garden's Web site as well as via www.billyjoel.com.
