Billy Joel Concert At Sunrise, Florida BB&T Center Called A 'Triumphant Return'

Billy Joel is an American institution. ... Tuesday night marked Joel's triumphant return to South Florida after a hiatus from live performance.

... Joel took his post behind a black Steinway and proceeded to run through a perfectly balanced set of hits and deep cuts to a completely packed BB&T Center. The crowd was positively jubilant for the duration of the evening, and though rarities and album tracks cut the bombast of the sing-alongs at times, Joel appeared to revel in the obscurities. However, the hits have not suffered from age. Joel hammered away gleefully at the popular numbers with a voice that appeared to be in as good a shape as ever, holding up the night's energy over the course of the set with ease.

Re: Billy Joel Concert At Sunrise, Florida BB&T Center Called A 'Triumphant Return'

Dear Mr. Joel,
You recently sent a message to a dear friend of mine, Perry Levet. He is fighting cancer. I wanted you to know how much I appreciated you taking the time to do this. It meant so much to him. As I said in my comment to him, "Mr. Joel, I have always loved your music but now I love you for being so kind to Perry." God bless you.
All the best,
Mary Daigre
