The enthusiastic Salt Lake crowd shuffled in, filling Vivint Arena to near capacity. And then the Piano Man stepped onto the Utah stage for the first time in several years. … They delighted in every moment.
… Joel — backed by his excellent Billy Joel Band — kicked things off with the anthemic “My Life.” … The song’s conclusion was met with a lively standing ovation, and that energy carried through the entire evening as Joel proved he’s as much an entertainer as he is a musician.
… “Piano Man” finished off a two-hour performance, but Joel wasn’t ready for things to be over. He kicked off a five-song encore set with the rapid-fire “We Didn’t Start the Fire,” his energy staying alive all the way through to the very last note of his final song, “You May Be Right.” – Deseret News
