Billy Joel will bring his two-hour show of hits to Cincinnati in September.

Will live music remain a thing with coronavirus on the rise in Greater Cincinnati again? Time will tell. Meanwhile, musicians regularly are adding tour stops within the Queen City as others reschedule concerts from last year's dance with the 'rona.

Johnny Gill, Spinderella, Byron Cage, Aug. 31, Online

Three songwriting titans will perform virtually as they accept leadership awards from Cincinnati's The Sister Accord Foundation. Gill and Spinderella (Dee Dee Roper) drew fans with their previous groups New Edition and Salt-N-Pepa, respectively, but both have enjoyed extensive solo fame, too. Cage is well known within Gospel circles. In 2016, Cincinnati Public Schools integrated a leadership development program from The Sister Accord into its programs. Tickets are on sale now via Eventbrite.
