Billy Joel was at his best in his March 9th performance at the world's most famous arena, where he electrified the capacity crowd with a selection of his mega-hits from his legendary career that spans five decades. … In addition to Joel's talent bridging different styles and tastes, so did his guests. Those in attendance were privileged to see Itzhak Perlman, perhaps the greatest living violinist, join Joel for a vibrant “Downeaster 'Alexa'” and a more subdued “And So It Goes.” His other guest, introduced as “guitar roadie, Chainsaw,” performed a bone-rattling rendition of AC/DC's “Highway To Hell.” Seeing Billy Joel at Madison Square Garden is an experience everyone who is a music enthusiast must enjoy. – Broadway World
