Legendary rocker Billy Joel remains a fierce touring attraction, evidenced by the crowd of 16,000 who came to his Scottrade Center concert Friday night. ... Joel is comfortable celebrating the past, making it feel fresh and reveling in its relevancy. ... Friday night’s concert marked the 20th anniversary of the venue, which 20 years ago was known as the Kiel Center. And it was none other than Joel who opened the venue in 1994.
... Over the course of two hours that included 22 songs, a meaty encore, a Ted Nugent diss and a nod to the Beatles with “When I’m Sixty-Four,” Joel serenaded fans with songs and stories that kept them enthralled, all the while keeping those ivories tickled.
