Joel To Play Last Gig At Shea

Published on February 10, 2008 with No Comments

Billy Joel will become the last artist to perform at New York’s Shea Stadium after announcing a summer show at the home of baseball team the New York Mets.

The Last Play At Shea, From The Beatles To Billy concert will take place on 16 July – in the middle of the Mets’ final season at the stadium.

Joel will become the only artist to play shows in both New York’s baseball meccas, Shea Stadium and Yankee Stadium, and he’ll be the first act to stage a show at Shea since Sir Elton John and Eric Clapton performed there in 1992.

The Beatles were the first music act to perform at Shea Stadium in 1965; artists including Bruce Springsteen, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and The Police have played there since.
