My parents (who have seen him at least 10-15 times) every time he'd say what the song was gonna be they'd be like

I mean, who expected Stiletto or Sleeping With the Television On?!! stuff like that was

he did leave out some stuff I would have liked to hear since it's my first time seeing him, but he was amazing

I almost died when it started I never expected it to be the first song and then you heard the piano and it was like


for the first song his voice wasn't as good as usual and I was a little disappointed (but I had to remember it was his first performance in a few years), but as the show progressed it got so much better He sounded amazing as usual. All For Leyna was incredible

and his piano spun around really slowly so he would be facing everyone, and he told the people who were behind him at first that he's sorry but at least they could see their reflection in his head now But then it turned- really cool and he spoke to the crowd a lot- almost between every song...that was cool too.

and he has keyboards on both ends behind the stage so he plays to the people behind the stage too


I can try to upload video clips if you want

I'm sorry - it's just that my loins are screaming right now. Sorry.

No video clips for me, this is a show that I've waited a lifetime to see and I need for every second to be surprise.

piano man to start i guess it could work.

quite the turn around... it's always been the show closer.

i've seen billy twice, both at the nassau coliseum... once when i was like 12 on new year's eve, one other time in like 11th grade on a regular tour night.

he puts on a great show.

i don't have tickets to the garden shows yet... but i'm sure by his final show in march i'll end up catching a show.

kinda waiting to see if any long island shows go on sale though... billy on long island is like u2 in dublin, or bruce in jersey.

it's a celebration, bitches.


he's got 9 shows at MSG as of now... but you can still find single tickets to the shows. they'll all sell out by show time, but it does look like he's a lock to outdraw U2's Vertigo tour stand.

i wonder if he plans on shooting for springsteen's 10 show stand

We're from Long Island (just moved a few years ago) and my parents have never seen him anywhere but there or the garden...and they actually said how it is a different feel- it's the hometown crowd!

with 10 shows at MSG I doubt he'll add more at the colliseum..but ya never know!

being a billy joel fan is a prerequiset for being from long island. the government sends you a copy of his greatest hits cd when you turn 12.

I really wish he was doing Honesty or Vienna - maybe he'll switch up the setlist a bit.
