billy joel 385 Street Date: Listen To Billy Joel's New CD/DVD, "Live at Shea Stadium"

[lastfm]Billy Joel[/lastfm] was not the first artist to play a concert at Shea Stadium, home of the New York Mets. But he was the last. Hence the title of the new documentary Last Play At Shea which documents the two concerts Joel gave in 2008, which would be the final two times that music was played at that historic sporting venue.

This week the full concert is available on CD, as a companion piece for the film. The CD is titled Billy Joel – Live at Shea Stadium and all this week you can stream selections from the album right here at Street Date.

Built in 1964, Shea Stadium was the home of the New York Mets for 45 years. Designed as a multi-purpose stadium, Shea became the birthplace of arena rock when the [lastfm]Beatles[/lastfm] appeared there August 15, 1965, establishing the ballpark as a pinnacle venue for rock’s biggest names: [lastfm]The Who[/lastfm], [lastfm]The Police[/lastfm], the [lastfm]Rolling Stones[/lastfm], [lastfm]Bruce Springsteen[/lastfm] and others have all played Shea.

Chosen as the last rock act to play the venue, Billy Joel staged his “Last Play At Shea” concerts on July 16 and July 18, 2008, rocking a combined audience of 110,000 fans with one of the most emotionally charged shows ever played at the historic stadium. After 45 years, two New York Mets World Series victories, the arena debut of The Beatles and Billy Joel’s “The Last Play At Shea,” the final section of Shea Stadium was torn down in 2009.

The full-concert companion to the acclaimed Lionsgate documentary The Last Play At Shea, Billy Joel – Live At Shea Stadium features more than two hours of Billy and his band offering definitive, and often transcendent versions of hits, rarities, deep catalog, personal favorites and crowd-pleasing surprises including duets with guest artists [lastfm]Paul McCartney[/lastfm] (“I Saw Her Standing There,” “Let It Be”), [lastfm]Tony Bennett[/lastfm] (“New York State of Mind”), [lastfm]Garth Brooks[/lastfm] (“Shameless”) and [lastfm]John Mayer[/lastfm] (“This Is The Time”) along with exclusive DVD/Blu-ray bonus performances with [lastfm]Steven Tyler[/lastfm] (“Walk This Way”), [lastfm]Roger Daltrey[/lastfm] (“My Generation”) and [lastfm]John Mellencamp[/lastfm] (“Pink Houses”).
