I shouldn't say anything - Ford Field and Comerica Park, anyone?

Tiger Stadium was pretty run down through, and the Silverdome was a complete dump - forget about seeing a concert there, the sound was terrible (saw U2 and The Stones there).

It just sucks when buildings that have some historical signifigance get torn down. Oh well.

Well, all good things must pass.

Didn't Billy play Shea with Elton John at some point in time in the 1990's?

I saw the Stones play Shea in 1989 for the Steel Wheels tour. It was my first concert and it was fucking awesome! The Steel Wheels stage was huge and Mick Jagger worked it like an arena show.

Of course, U2 played THE Stadium, Yankee Stadium!

NEW YORK - Billy Joel will make "The Last Play at Shea" in a final concert at Shea Stadium on July 16.

The Piano Man will perform the night after baseball's All-Star game at Yankee Stadium, the Mets announced Thursday.

"It's an honor to help throw Shea the ultimate concert farewell party," said Joel, 58. "As a sports fan and a music lover, I will always have a place for Shea Stadium in my heart. I thank the Mets for giving me and my fans a chance to rock Shea Stadium one last time for the ages."

A new stadium, Citi Field, is to open for the 2009 season.

Hey, looks like Billy "roots" for both NY teams too. Hahaha.

When he played The Stadium back in 1990, he wore his Yankee gear.

How dare he.

But he doesn't post in the sports forum and he's an internationally renowned musician so I'm guessing he's exempt.

Like I said when this was posted initially, I'd love to go see this.

All I need is my own teletransporter thingy that goes directly to NY.

NEW YORK, N.Y., February 19, 2008 - The New York Mets today announced that rock and roll icon Billy Joel has added a second - and final - show on Friday, July 18 in "The Last Play at Shea." Tickets for the final concert event in Shea Stadium history go on sale this Saturday, February 23 at 9:00 a.m. at www.507TIXX.com and by phone at (718) 507-TIXX. Citi cardmembers also will have access to purchase preferred seats through Citi's Private Pass® Program, available to all Citi cardmembers at www.privatepass.citi.com

Today's announcement follows the fastest concert sell out in Shea's 44-year history when more than 50,000 tickets sold on the Mets' www.507TIXX.com ticketing system powered by Paciolan in 48 minutes.

Billy Joel becomes the fourth artist to play multiple shows at Shea Stadium since its opening in 1964, joining Rock & Roll Hall of Famers the Beatles (1965, 1966), the Rolling Stones (1989), Elton John & Eric Clapton (1992), and Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band (2003).

With his upcoming shows at Shea, Joel becomes the first artist in music history to have played all four of New York City's premier sporting venues: Shea Stadium, Yankee Stadium, Giants Stadium and Madison Square Garden, where, in April 2006, he broke the record for longest sequence of sold-out shows by a single artist (12).

The Mets will play their final regular season game at Shea, Sunday, September 28 against the Florida Marlins and move into Citi Field, their new home, in 2009.
new yorkers/long islanders and billy joel is like germans and david hasselhoff.

Paul Simon has played MSG/YANKEE/SHEA/GIANTS, although the only time I can recall off the top of my head of him playing at YANKEE wass to sing "where have you gone Joe DiMaggio" at a tribute/retirement/anniversary several years ago.

well there's a number of artists who have played at all 4 stadiums/arenas (national anthems, god bless america, ceremonys, tributes, etc.), i believe they mean billy joel is the first to stage full scale concerts at all 4.

i believe the only acts to play full scale concerts at yankee stadium are billy joel, u2 and pink floyd.

if there was any doubt that billy joel is the most popular artist in the new york city area, i believe the prices that tickets for this shea show are going for put an end to that doubt.
