The Piano Man (Update)

This is where A and I were on November 10, together with 11,000 plus others at the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne.

After the earlier drama of buying tickets, we finally got to see Billy Joel live in concert! Definitely a fun night and nothing quite like hearing him belt out his hits live. Starting off with "Angry Old Man", the concert kicked into high gear with very spirited renditions of "My Life" (complete with audience sing-a-long, me included), "Uptown Girl", "Moving Out" and ending off with "The Piano Man" for his second encore. We didn't have the best seats in the house, seeing most of his back except when the stage on which the piano sat rotated 360' but it was close enough to feel the energy emanating from this incredibly talented 57 year old pounding on the piano. A and I had a great night for sure!
