Sing Us A Song, Piano Man!

Forty-three shows and still going strong . . . Multi-platinum recording artist and multi-Grammy Award winner Billy Joel continues his residency at Madison Square Garden in NYC. Joel has been playing a show a month at “the world’s most famous arena” since his residency began at The Garden in January 2014.

The music icon, singer, songwriter and pianist certainly hasn’t lost his touch, belting out classic hits and fan favorites including “Uptown Girl,” “Big Shot,” “River of Dreams,” “We Didn’t Start The Fire,” “You May Be Right,” “Don’t Ask Me Why,” “Piano Man” and more.

During the show, Joel engages the audience by throwing out a “fielder’s choice” giving the audience an opportunity to pick from a choice of songs for Joel and his band to perform. Joel even tosses in a medley of other familiar tunes throughout the night. In a recent show, Joel incorporated The Isley Brothers’ “Shout” while performing “River of Dreams” and later played a few bars from Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy” as well as Elmer Bernstein’s theme song for “The Magnificent Seven.”

Let’s not forget about Joel’s band, a band comprised of some of the finest musicians and vocalists you’ve ever seen and heard. Together, Billy Joel and his band put on one incredible and memorable show . . . a night you won’t soon forget! Truly, a night to remember!

How does that lyric from “Piano Man” go again?

“Cause he knows that it’s me they’ve been coming to see to forget about life for a while.”

Check out some clips below from Billy Joel’s August 2017 performance at Madison Square Garden in NYC.
