Billy Joel—Live at Shea Stadium
CD + DVD ($13.99)

For less than the price of a concert ticket, you can experience the piano man’s full-length 2008 show, the last musical performance at the legendary New York venue before its date with the wrecking ball. Joel makes a passionate, keyboard-pounding romp through greatest hits and old favorites, and Paul McCartney, Tony Bennett, Garth Brooks and other all stars drop by for duets. For the Bronx-born Grammy-winning singer-songwriter, it was one huge, harmonious homecoming—and a festive farewell to an arena that was a part of rock ’n’ roll history for more than half a century.
