Billy Joel made Baltimore history on Friday, July 26 when he performed the first ever concert at Oriole Park at Camden Yards...so what exactly did the Piano Man play?
Joel sang crowd pleaser after crowd pleaser, kicking off the show with the 1986 hit "Matter of Trust" before rolling into "Pressure" and "The Entertainer." Given that he has a plethora of songs to choose from, the Piano Man then gave the audience the choice of whether they wanted to hear "Vienna" or "Just The Way You Are" and based on the crowd's reaction, they chose "Vienna" to hear! He also had jokes, exclaiming before he played the lesser known tracks "Big Man on Mulberry Street" and "A Room Of Our Own," that these songs would be a good opportunity for fans to go to the bathroom. Joel closed out his main set with the classic "Piano Man" (to which at one point the stadium was shaking from everyone singing the chorus) but of course Camden Yards wanted more! He then returned to play a 5-song encore of "We Didn't Start The Fire," "Uptown Girl," "Sill Rock N Roll To Me," "Big Shot" and "You May Be Right."
Were you at the show?! If so, tell us your favorite song!
