Billy Joel may not be playing Madison Square Garden this summer but his fans can catch him on social media. The more than two-hour concert, “Live at Shea Stadium,” will stream on The Piano Man’s official Facebook site (facebook.com/billyjoel/) on Saturday at 8 p.m.
The 2011 film captures performances from Joel’s two historic shows, on July 16 and 18, 2008, two months before the Flushing ballpark closed for good.
The show features a 25-song set including guest appearances by Tony Bennett on “New York State of Mind,” Garth Brooks on “Shameless,” John Mayer on “This Is the Time” and Paul McCartney (who famously played Shea with his bandmates in 1965) on Beatles classics “I Saw Her Standing There” and “Let It Be.”
