So… my first time seeing Billy Joel in almost 3 years and my first time seeing him w/o Elton John in nearly 8 years…  and wow what a great show… He played deep cuts and hits alike… the only down side was the lack of long-time drummer Liberty DeVitto.. though new drummer Chuck Burgi is very talented.. he was just missing the qualities that Liberty had that brought the songs and gave them so much energy and life.

Ashton & I were sitting 24th row center for the show.. due to his performance, we walked in at the begninning of the 3rd song… It was Ashton’s first time seeing Billy Joel and what a great time we had… i got some shirts which i cant wait to start to wear. haha..
