This concert by Billy Joel and this song in particular is one of my all time favorites. It gives me goose bumps actually. And aside from the brilliance of both Billy and Tony I love the saxaphone artist…..

Mark Rivera.

The shows were staged on July 16 and 18, 2008, before a combined 110,000 fans, and were the last performances ever to play the historic stadium before it was demolished

The film premiered on August 21, 2010 at Citi Field, Shea Stadium’s successor, in front of around 20,000 moviegoers. Earlier that day, Joel watched it himself and there was an announcement from him that he liked it and said “I haven’t puked from it,” which was shown right before the film.

The 90-minute film uses historical footage and animation. It uses the concerts to tell a broader story of Shea Stadium’s history and how that related to changes that occurred in American suburban life and how they affected Long Island and Billy Joel. The film reveals several previously unknown facts.
