The legendary Billy Joel played to a sold-out crowd of 40,000 at Busch Stadium in St. Louis, MO on Thursday, September 21, 2017. Although U2 and Ed Sheeran had previously canceled shows earlier this week, due to unrest in the city, The Entertainer decided that the show must go on. It was a very humid and buggy evening but it didn’t stop Mr. Joel from giving an amazing performance that lasted for over two and a half hours. The Piano Man opened the evening with ‘My Life’ and proceeded to follow up with hit after hit from his career spanning over four decades.
In the meantime, he graciously interacted with the crowd as he proudly sipped from his NYPD coffee mug. It had been numerous years since he had performed in St. Louis and his fans were appreciative of his presence. Thank you, Billy Joel, for bringing your incredibly talented, musical abilities to a town that ever so needed a great night of music.
