Billy Joel did his 100th show at New York's Madison Square Garden with a little help from someone who is no stranger to the legendary arena, his friend, Columbia Records labelmate and fellow Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Bruce Springsteen.
Bruce, who had an off-night from his Springsteen on Broadway residency, came out to do "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out." Then strapped on his trademark Fender Telecaster for a bring-the-house-down version of "Born to Run."
As for the rest of the show, it was clear that Billy's song selection tied into the milestone show. He opened with "Big Shot" into "My Life" followed by "The Entertainer." He also tossed in a snippet of Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive" later in the show.
Billy returns to the Garden for his 101st show on August 23rd.
