"The Last Play At Shea" is hitting theaters across the U.S. today! You can buy tickets for special screenings in selected cities. Don't miss it!
I am extremely disappointed that there isn't a theater in Oklahoma that will pick this up. Yes, you have many fans in Oklahoma. Billy's concerts were packed full. Will this be played anytime in the future?
We are originally from NJ and have been a fan since the early 70s. We only moved here two years ago after the economy down turn. We came to see Billy in concert more times than I can count. Billy Joel's music is what I listen to when I am down and when I am up. It soothes the soul.
You would not call us fanatical fans, just admirers of a musical genius. (Although, my daughter's name is Christie Lynn. Had to make a little change there. It was my sister Linda's suggestion.)
We were at the concert in 1980 something in Madison Square Garden, sitting in front of Gary Carter and Keith Hernandez when they gave Billy a Met's jacket. I got smacked in the head with it, but that was okay by me.
When the Met's won the series in 1969, my friend and I were partying in the streets of Manhattan. My father in law who has sinced passed, was a die hard Mets fan.
You can say that Billy Joel and the Mets have been a part of our lives since we can remember.
Thanks Billy, for all the wonderful songs and memories. Keep up the good work and dang it, stay healthy.
