From the Piano to Preacher - Billy Joel is Worshiped at Dodger Stadium

From the Piano to Preacher - Billy Joel is Worshiped at Dodger Stadium

The brilliant talent of Billy Joel spans more than four decades and between both coasts of the USA. And Billy Joel took the stage of the sold-out Dodger Stadium to a church ready to hear his gospel and praised his every word. With only a few hours to squeeze in his enormous catalogue, Billy Joel was able to give what the fans wanted to hear and sing - the hits.  Echoing through the stadium were Movin Out, Say Goodbye to Hollywood, We Didn't Start the Fire, The River of Dreams and the Piano Man. But it wouldn't be L.A. with a few surprise guest as Billy Joel brought out Pink to join him for a New York State of Mind and have her perform her hit song, Try. He even did a few covers including a mid-song break of River Dreams with the Eagles' Take It Easy and brought out Axl Rose screaming AC/DC's Highway To Hell including Billy Joel playing the electric guitar. Axl Rose again joined him during the encore with Big Shot.
