Every iconic venue deserves an encore. At Shea Stadium, it was only fitting
that Billy Joel was the legend who brought the curtain down.
With Beatlemania at its height in 1965, Shea Stadium in Queens, New York was the site of the first stadium show
ever by The Beatles, or any rock & roll band for that matter. The Beatles’ Shea performances made an impression
on a young working-class musician from Long Island named Billy Joel.
When the Mets built a new stadium and said
goodbye to Shea in 2008, the local native turned superstar was the logical choice to give it a proper sendoff.
The companion to the acclaimed documentary The Last Play At Shea, the premiere release of Billy Joel Live
At Shea Stadium features a full concert-length program: more than two hours of hits, history, memories and guest stars
including Paul McCartney, all in riveting performances worthy of the historic building where it all went down.
Available in three formats -- 2-CD+DVD, standalone DVD, and Blu-ray -- Live At Shea Stadium chronicles the story of a night that paid tribute to
the past and made a little history of its own. From the Label
