Billy Joel London Concert Gets Five-Star Review - See Photos And Set List

Now freed from the prejudices of the past, a new generation is being bowled over by the sheer force and heart of Billy Joel’s material, and an enthusiastic audience gave him his dues.

In exchange for this faith, the pugnacious Joel delivered the big hitters with crowd-stirring flair, from debut single "Piano Man" and his sole UK number one "Uptown Girl" to fan favorites "We Didn’t Start The Fire" and "Allentown." He twirled the mic-stand like a hefty majorette during the stomp of "It’s Still Rock and Roll To Me" and inserted “Rule Britannia” into "The River of Dreams," where he proved his falsetto could still drift upwards into an everyman’s spiritual. It’s by no means his best song on record, but live it proved a warm, uplifting embrace: a big boxer’s bear hug at the end of a knockout night. Five stars.
