Editorial Reviews

A concert celebrating the end of an era: The Beatles opened it and Billy Joel closed it. Built in 1964, Shea Stadium was the home of the New York Mets for 45 years. Designed as a multi-purpose stadium, Shea first met rock 'n' roll when The Beatles appeared there August 15, 1965, establishing Shea as the premier stadium for the world's greatest bands. The Who, The Police, The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen and The Clash all played Shea. The Last Play At Shea, staged on July 16 and July 18, 2008 before a combined 110,000 fans, comprised the final performances ever at the historic stadium. Live At Shea Stadium contains two and a half hours of hits and album favorites, featuring special guests Paul McCartney, Tony Bennett, Garth Brooks, John Mayer, John Mellencamp, Steven Tyler and Roger Daltrey. Live At Shea Stadium captures the music and memories of a generation. After 45 years, the Mets' two World Series victories, The Beatles and The Last Play At Shea, the final section of Shea Stadium was torn down in 2009.

Billy Joel: Live At Shea Stadium, is a great live album featuring Billy's final performance at Shea Stadium.

So, I do absolutely recommend to buy the cd/dvd box, not only for huge Billy Joel fans.

There are a few artists whose music provides a soundtrack to one's life. As a boomer, The Beatles top my list. As a keyboard player there were only two artists whose music provided the inspiration for me to rock out and believe that I didn't have to wield a guitar to prove my post-adolescent worth as a musician. And those two artists, needless to say, were Elton John (who I chase down Braodway following an early appearance on the Dick Cavett show) and Billy Joel.

I first saw Joel in the early 1970s in Buffalo New York as an undergraduate. For some reason, the Piano Man album was getting early, heavy air play in Buffalo, and Joel broke big there. I mean really big. He was grabbed to open for Jesse Colin Young of The Youngbloods (Get Together). Joel put on an explosive set, and the audience wouldn't let him off of the stage. Finally someone off of stage right pulled the plug on him. Literally. Amps and sound went off. Joel stormed off the stage, some yelling ensued, the lights on the amps went back on, the audience roared its approval, and Joel uttered his infamous end-of-concert admonishment not to take any, uh, stuff, from anybody. (Words that close this Shea set as well.)

It seems both silly and unnecessary to comment on the musical value of any of Billy Joel at this point in time. However, a few things need to be said. A skilled pianist, a gifted tunesmith, and a profoundly bipolar personality, Joel has had more than his share of hits from rock critics who have decried his music as being unoriginal, uninspired, or at worst, derived from the work and styles of other artists. What is they often fail to mention, is that Joel (who freely acknowledges his debt to other artists) forged his own unique style of American music. And then some.

* DVD *

Masterfully shot and probably the only reason why someone should buy this collection. Accurately captures a post-2005 Billy Joel concert in all its glory. The only thing missing (for obvious time constraint reasons) is more of Joel's hilarious in-between banter, which only adds to the entertainment of seeing him live. However, there are many great, memorable moments that are not present on the CDs, stunning visuals, and three incredible bonus songs. Watching this successfully conveys the message of any great concert DVD: Yes, this concert was a blast!

* CDs *

I'll put the bulk of my energy here, as this is the meat of the package. But first, let's rewind through time:

Songs in the Attic: Probably the most beautiful, complete Billy Joel live album in existence - something which came at a pivotal time in Joel's ever-growing career. Old singles and back-catalog material were suddenly brand new. And the album's pacing was incredible, switching from small club shows to monstrous stadium shakers every other track. One could get instant chills during "Captain Jack," "She's Got A Way," and "Streetlife Serenader," and this album quickly became the fan favorite - the pure Billy Joel experience. (A similar thrill came from hearing the live disk in the Legacy Edition of The Stranger, released in 2008.)

Kohuept: Garbage. Washed-out, clanky mixing with mediocre-to-terrible performances.

2000 Years: Better, but not great by a long shot. An interesting mix of many amazing songs, but not consistently good. If this had been trimmed down to a single disk of the night's most memorable performances, it would have been infinitely more valuable.

12 Gardens Live: Transposed songs?

Let me begin my saying how much I LOVE Billy Joel, always have and always will. I'm also proud to say that I attended the 7/18/08 show at shea and was the best concert I ever attended. The quality of this album is beyond excellent, the songs sounds amazing, BUT, the track list is almost verbatim of the "12 Gardens Live" album, even down to the very little details. Example: Opening the album with Angry Young Man and My Life, and opening the second disc with Goodnight Saigon. Of course the McCartney stuff on this album is very good and VERY emotional, especially if you were there on that very exciting and humid night. Also, John Mayer's solo on Time to Remember is cool. Overall, if you went to one of the shea shows, you'll love this album, if you have listened to the 12 Gardens album a million times, you'll find yourself wondering why you bought this album.
BTW, after reviewing Joel's set lists of these shows and all his shows of the past 4 or so years, one thing is very clear, he's very redundant in writing his set lists. The SAME songs, in the SAME order for every show, and very rarely changing it up in between. I strongly recommend that Billy Joel, on his next tour, once a night, throw in a real rarity, such as, All for Lenya, Roberta, Los Angelinos, Traveling Prayer, That's Not Her Style, etc. And record those songs to make sort of "Beyond Greatest Hits Live" type of album. I know he kind of approached this on 12 Gardens and the My Lives boxset, but didn't really push the petal to the metal, I know bad choice of words, but the thought remains valid. Don't get me wrong, I love Angry Young Man, We Didn't Start the Fire, and all those, I just think there's a lot more to choose from and by not performing those rarities, Mr. Joel is just holding his catalog back and not sharing all he really has. LOVE YOU BILLY!!!!!

Is the DVD with this set the same as the standalone DVD?
Just got back from the store to check both versions out. The DVD on both does contain the 5.1 track and same song listings. Hope this helps!

YAWN!!!!
You did need to say more. But I also thought the concert was pretty boring. Almost none of his rockers left it as basically a 2 and a half hour long piano ballad.
