Billy Joel plans to premiere his documentary "Last Play at Shea," which chronicles the final concerts at Shea Stadium, at Citi Field on Aug. 21.
" 'The Last Play at Shea' was one of the most memorable concerts I have ever performed," Joel said in a statement. "I'm proud to experience that history with this film, participating in a musical legacy which started at Shea and continues on at Citi Field."
Joel's final shows at Shea in 2008 included appearances by Tony Bennett, John Mayer and, in a fitting bit of symmetry, Paul McCartney, who has the distinction of playing the first and last song at Shea Stadium.
Tickets for the documentary will be $10 and go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday through 507TIXX.com and by phone at 718-507-TIXX.
