Brian Johnson on stage tonight for a rendition of the Australian
Shook Me All Night Long" at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
Joel has a hard rock background dating back to his time in the '70s as a member of Attila.
Billy last performed with Johnson, as well as AC/DC bassist Cliff Williams, at a 2002
concert in Tampa. Brian Johnson and Cliff Williams guested on "Highway To Hell" that
The Piano Man has gone on to play "Highway To Hell" 130 times since. The main set also saw
Joel work The Beatles's "A Hard Days Night" into "River Of Dreams."
The other big "surprise" of the evening was the live debut of "Surprises" off 1982's
The Nylon Curtain. Joel's band was augmented by a string section for the first
performance of the 32-year-old song.
Opener Gavin DeGraw shared a photo op with Johnson that he shared on Instagram:
