Billy Joel had himself a busy Wednesday this week in and just outside of New York City.
It started early in the day on his native Long Island when he joined his friend, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo at Belmont Park to announce that a new arena will be built there. It will be home to the New York Islanders of the National Hockey League, who will move there from their temporary home in Brooklyn, New York after spending their first 43 years just 15 miles away from the Belmont site at the Nassau Coliseum.
One of the arena's investors is James Dolan, who owns Madison Square Garden in New York City, which is where Billy performed Wednesday night as part of his one-show-a-month for life at the arena. He was joined by Steve Miller, who now calls New York home, for a run through "The Joker." This was Miller's second time as Billy's special guest. The first time was in 2015.
