Pop Break Live: Billy Joel at Madison Square Garden
When you are an aspiring musician, you dream of one day playing to a sold out crowd at The Garden in New York City. For Billy Joel, it’s just another Wednesday in February.
The “Piano Man” played his 38th consecutive show at The Garden bringing his grand total of performances at the historic venue to 84.
The Long Island native played through a massive setlist with chart-topping hits like “Big Shot”, “We Didn’t Start The Fire”, and “Moving Out (Anthony’s Song)”, and covered classics from Elton John, Eagles, and Louis Armstrong.
The Pop Break’s Al Mannarino was on the scene capturing the legendary performer on stage.
