At Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Billy Joel drew a sold-out crowd of rabid, sing-along fans and put on a two-hour show that thrilled.
Joel spent three decades as a hitmaker, throwing the brakes on pop music writing after 1993’s “River of Dreams.” His Nashville performances began in the 1970s with Exit/In, he said Friday. After that much practice, Joel is so comfortable on an arena stage he may as well still be playing that immortalized East Coast venue where the microphone smells like a beer.
…Joel hopped among decades and saved his energy for a one-after-the-other string of hits during the encore: “We Didn’t Start the Fire,” “Uptown Girl,” “It’s Still Rock and Roll to Me,” “Big Shot,” “You May Be Right” and “Only the Good Die Young.”
