I very much enjoyed "Great Performances: Billy Joel: Live at Shea Stadium"
I few days ago, I watched Paul McCartney's concert at the new Citi Stadium on my DVR. Now I just watched Billy Joel's concert at the place the City replaced on the site, Shea Stadium. It was held on the last day of Shea's existence and it was fitting that among the guests was Sir Paul himself since one of The Beatles' most celebrated concerts was held there. He sang "I Saw Her Standing There" (which he reprised with Joel at that other concert) and "Let It Be". Also guesting were Tony Bennett who dueted with Billy on "New York State of Mind" and Garth Brooks who sang his hit that was written by Joel, "Shameless". Joel himself was in fine form whether singing "River of Dreams" which had "A Hard Days Night" inserted in the middle, "She's Always a Woman" which had a couple in the audience kissing which Billy commented on, "Piano Man", "Allentown", "Scenes from an Italian Restaurant", and "We Didn't Start the Fire". Very enjoyable concert I watched from PBS though I now realize not everything was included as I found out when reading the trivia notes on this site. Still, I highly enjoyed "Billy Joel: Live at Shea Stadium".
