Performance

Amazing. Simply amazing. No hyperbole. No understatement. Spot-on amazing. It is as if Billy recognized that his true fans has seen him enough to have witnessed the catalogue of hits at least twice-over in person. So he's packaged a live album (finally one with superior sound quality)with rarities and deep album cuts. Talk about your "songs in the attic". To hear "Laura" and "She's Right on Time" is treat enough, but concert-versions of the absolutely soul-scorching "The Night is Still Young" and the grudge anthem "The Great Wall of China" ignite this amalgam of cuts from Billy's historic 12 night sell-out run at the Garden. Find the standards. Find the hits. Then dig deeper. If you can't find at least a half a dozen you've never heard live than you are a true afficionado. If so, you'll appreciate the choices. If not, you'll find brand new reasons to appreciate just what Billy has brought to music. This is the Christmas/birthday/anniversary/just-because gift you've waited for....

Product Overview

No other artist has shook the "World's Most Famous Arena" quite like Billy Joel has.

With 12 record-breaking sold-out performances, Billy Joel now has the longest most successful run of a single artist at MSG.

On the 12th sold-out night of this incredible run, a MSG jersey 'Joel 12' was raised among the rafters and presides alongside NY sport legends, making Billy Joel the first non-athlete to have this honor bestowed upon him.

For all those who were there to witness this great moment in music history or for those who want to experience the magic of Billy Joel's captivating MGS performances for the first time, comes the new record 12 Gardens Live. This extraordinary double-CD release from Billy Joel was recorded live at Madison Square Garden during his recent record-breaking twelve sold-out shows in New York City and features amazing live versions of greatest hits and fan favorites including "New York State Of Mind," "Piano Man," "We Didn't Start The Fire," and many more!
