Billy Joel news !

BILLY JOEL rang in the new year, in concert, at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Florida, with special guests and a great performance of some of his greatest hits ! Opening for JOEL was singer-songwriter Gavin Degraw, singing his hits, "Chariot" and "I Don't Want To Be", among others. Comedian Kevin James showed up, goofing around on the piano, nailing the first few opening bars of "Miami 2017", before declaring that the piano was out of tune. And in the final minutes before the clock struck midnight, two other special guests jumped on stage, Late night host Jimmy Kimmel and Radio shock jock Howard Stern ! As for the random appearance by both, Stern said jokingly, that the tickets were free, and that "It's too f_ _ _ ing cold in New York." But the show was far from over, BILL JOEL played until after 1 AM !
