Last night’s Billy Joel concert at Wrigley Field was beyond exciting – for a number of reasons:
1) It’s Billy Freakin’ Joel!
2) I got to stand on the grass at the friendly confines for the very first time!
3) Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer showed up and danced on top of Billy’s piano!
Billy Joel was playing the final concert ever at Long Island’s Nassau Coliseum.
It’s Turntable Tuesday, so I decided to play one of my favorite Billy Joel songs!
Joel will play the coliseum on Aug. 4 for its final show.
Turning 40 can sometimes put things into perspective and, if this song is any indication, it did for Billy Joel.
Because why not?
August 27, 2015 will mark Billy’s FOURTH show at Clark and Addison. According to Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts, that sets a new record!
Enjoy this brand new rendition of “Piano Man,” featuring Kevin Spacey, Boyz II Men, Gavin DeGraw, Natalie Maines, Josh Groban, LeAnn Rimes, Tony Bennett…oh, and even Billy Joel, himself!
Fans can get an early listen of the impressive compilation today via a YouTube stream.
Joel stays true to the McCartney composition, leaning towards the live version from ‘Wings Over America’ for his fiery take on the tune.
