Billy Joel Makes the Last Play at Shea
Maybe you've already heard that Shea Stadium, home of the New York Mets, will be closing its doors. And to make the farewell even more special, Billy Joel will have the honor of closing the stadium with Last Play at Shea. The show will take place on July 13 and will make him the first artist in history to play at Shea Stadium, Yankee Stadium, Madison Square Garden and Giants' Stadium.
This closing performance marks an end of a musical era for Shea. Not only did the Beatles open their US tour in 1965 making it the first major outdoor stadium show, but the legendary Rolling Stones and even the Boss rocked out there.
Here's a clip of the legendary Beatles' performance...
