On Friday, Billy Joel took his familiar place behind the Steinway and delighted a sold-out crowd of 20,070 at the Forum with a heartfelt performance befitting a virtuoso who has been telling stories for the better part of four decades.

After he was welcomed on stage with a standing ovation, Joel opened with a spirited “Miami 2017 (Seen the Lights Go Out on Broadway)” and the hard-driving “Pressure,” complete with an impressive light show that was used sparingly — but appropriately — throughout the performance.

Along with the numerous tributes to New York on the big screen, what followed was a night of the familiar hits and engaging personality that has endeared him to a legion that embraces the man as much as his music.
