Sting & John Mellencamp Join Billy Joel At Madison Square Garden

Last night, Billy Joel’s record-breaking run of shows at Madison Square Garden in NYC continued. The Piano Man welcomed a pair of old friends up to the stage at different points of the performance as both Sting and John Mellencamp shared the stage with Billy and his band on Tuesday night.

Billy Joel dug deep early in the show for rarities “All For Leyna,” “Vienna” and “Summer Highland Falls” among a bevy of hits. Sting emerged 13 songs into the performance to duet with Joel on “Big Man On Mulberry Street.” Earlier this month Sting sang the same song as a tribute to Billy Joel at the ASCAP Centennial Awards. Towards the end of Joel’s main set, The Piano Man welcomed John Mellencamp to the stage. Mellencamp was backed by Billy and his band on a rendition of his 1983 hit “Crumblin’ Down.” The show came to a close with a four-song encore of “Uptown Girl,” “It’s Still Rock And Roll To Me,” “You May Be Right” and “Only The Good Die Young.”
