Billy Joel's Back to The Future Setlist In Tampa Earlier This Month

All hits all the time

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My friend Terry Salak Facebooked me to tell me how great Billy Joel was at Tampa Bay Times Forum last Friday and I trust her opinion enough to wonder what the difference was between his New Year’s Eve gig at Barclay Center, which I panned, and this one.

After the Barclay gig I claimed it was gonna be a short MSG run if this is what he plans to present and apparently that was a one off for the uber-fans because at Tampa it was again the soprt of set dreams are made of:

Miami 2017 (Seen the Lights Go Out on Broadway)
Pressure
Sleeping with the Television On
Vienna
My Life
All for Leyna
Movin’ Out (Anthony’s Song)
Layla snippet (Derek & the Dominoes)
Zanzibar
And So It Goes
Allentown
New York State of Mind
The Entertainer
Don’t Ask Me Why
The River of Dreams
Scenes From an Italian Restaurant
Piano Man


Encore:
Big Shot
It’s Still Rock and Roll to Me
You May Be Right
Only the Good Die Young

Now, pop pickers, this is the sort of set that can run and run and run forever. The only eh in the lot is “All For Leyna” and other than that it is a stroll through the hits by a master so… I am planning to catch at least one show during this MSG stint and if he pulls a fast one and goes deep, he will be in extreme trouble!
