Billy Joel’s 25th MSG Performance This March 15th, 2015

151119-billy-joel3_01

I’ve seen Billy many many times, and quite  few times at MSG specifically. Four times during the 12 Gardens shows in 2006, the penultimate Shea Stadium gig, and, of course, the Barclay center 2013 New Year’s Eve show, as well as the twice at the ongoing MSG residency. Once a month till further notice.

In the past ten years Billy went from the peak of his live skills to past the peak of his skills. In January of this year I wrote: “Billy Joel’s 13th  consecutive sellout at his epic Madison Square Garden residency was a little on the loose side, pinning up everything we might have problems with the heavyweight piano man. Somewhere between a deep tracks collection and a round up the usual suspects greatest hits, it isn’t as easy as  it looks to maneuver an easygoing two hour superstar set.”

On March 15th, 2016, Billy will perform his 25th concert on this spectacular run. Which makes it two years and a month.

Me? I’m hoping to keep on at once a year even if I am not crazy about them myself. There is something so New York about this stand, that I love it for only that reason. Long may it last…
