"Piano Man"," Movin' Out" and "You May Be Right" were cut from the HBO Special. In 1983, the VCR was just coming into its own at affordable prices. The fans at home, who taped the HBO Special, learned of the complete version of the concert when they viewed the Fox/CBS Home Video version that was displayed at their local video store. See more »
I lived 15 minutes from the Coliseum but I didn't get a ticket for this show. I waited for HBO to show it in 1983 ( I think the actual show was in Dec. 1982). I was A Betamax person and made a great copy off HBO. The set he did was all the greats starting with "Allentown". Over the past 27 odd years my tapes are starting to go bad, so since it's 2009 and I have a DVD recorder, I plugged the old Beta into it and PRESTO! I got one great DVD!. With my sound system which is not surround but still very good Dolby I can't believe how great it sounds after all these years! If you are an old-time Billy Joel fan, this Concert is a must-see! It is from the Golden-Age of rock, before all this hip-hop trash.
