    A Reference Blu-Ray level performance and filming

    Billy Joel. Live. Shea Stadium. All together now- a fantastic concert film, with too many guest starts and high points to name them all.

    The visuals- Sure, it's just a concert video, but after watching the Blu-Ray version of this concert on my top-o-line plasma, I now consider this one of my reference discs for judging any future TV purchases. The level of clarity and depth in the long shots (over Billy Joel's shoulder, looking out over the Shea crowd) are incredibly detailed, colorful, and just plain amazing!

    The sound- FANTASTIC! A nice blend of old and new songs, with guests including Tony Bennett (on "New York State of Mind") and Garth Brooks ("Shameless"), Billy and the band give 100% and then some. Having Paul McCartney help close out the concert wasn't a bad idea, either.

    Get the Blu-Ray of this concert. It will not disappoint.

    A "must have" for serious Billy Joel fans.

    Please take the time to find a copy of Billy Joel: Live at Shea Stadium despite the fact that it is going to be incredibly hard to get. This DVD will remind you why you absolutely love this gifted, crazy artist. The performances are riveting and the sound is excellent. Terrific, joyful, soulful, and fun. Order it or go buy it, NOW.
