Billy Joel plays the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans!

BILLY JOEL proves he's 'The Entertainer', of New Orleans! On Friday, February 10, 2017 in a 2 & 1/2 hour marathon set, BILLY JOEL had the sold-out 20,000 plus crowd at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, Louisiana, on their feet, singing BILLY JOEL songs with BILLY JOEL! BILLY JOEL's songs and voice, (at age 67) are still in fine form! And, at some moments his younger days resurface, as they did during this show, when during a rousing 'It's Still Rock And Roll To Me', he twirled the mic stand like a majorette does her baton in a Mardi Gras parade, finally tossing it across the stage to a roadie! And, BILLY JOEL took full advantage of the musical history of New Orleans and played, 'Iko Iko', 'Born On The Bayou', 'House Of The Rising Sun', 'When The Saints Come Marching In' and a funked-out version of LaBelle's 'Lady Marmalade', which was recorded at Sea-Saint Studios in Gentilly, New Orleans. It was as New Orleans as it gets! And in between his tributes to New Orleans BILLY JOEL played his own hits, such as the show's opener, 'My Life', to the final number, 'You May Be Right'! It was a show the attendees will not soon forget!
