Billy Joel puts on a hell of a show although Iím going off the one show I attended probably over 15 years ago and what Iíve seen of him over the years in videos. I believe like all the others in that age bracket, heís a lot less animated on stage and singing in much lower keys than he used to. Iíd almost be half tempted to see this given how good of a show Billy does and how his songbook is full of classics. But alas, it ainít coming here and Iím not planning/booking travel to see septuagenarians anymore.

Iím curious where theyíll duet. Leather and Lace seems likely. But what song of his? New York State of Mind? Some of the lyrics of Big Shot would be on point.

I would see Billy Joel despite his age, I donít expect older people to quit performing because theyíre not as agile as they were 20 years ago. I saw Dolly Parton before the pandemic and she was great. Well, I thought she was great, even though she didnít use a screen and she didnít move around like she used to. Just like people saying Lindsey was more subdued this last tour. Iím thrilled he, Dolly, Stevie, Billy, Elton John, Pat Benatar, Diana Ross etc are still performing.

As to possible duets, I know one song Macfan4life would love to hear- Two Kinds of Love, originally performed by Stevie and Bruce Hornsby. Being a piano man, that would seem an obvious choice for Billy, except it was a bomb as a single.

And it was a bomb live too. It was horrible in an arena and a stadium would be worse. I bet they don't perform on each other's stage. But who knows. I see Billy singing SDMHA more than leather and lace.

I heard the live version from her tour in Texas and it actually sounded great. I think Two Kinds of Love would be a great choice, but since itís so unknown, it just seems unlikely.

BTW, I saw on the back of the Stand Back collection, for disc 2 which has mostly duets, every song either says Ďwith or featuringí Tom Petty, Sheryl Crow, Kenny Loggins, etc but Two Kinds of Love doesnít mention Bruce Hornsby at all.

Does anybody have any idea why his name was left off? Seems very odd.

Nov 11

Fri ē 5:30pm

Atlanta, GA

Mercedes-Benz Stadium

ATLive - Billy Joel, Lionel Richie, Sheryl Crow
I'd have been interested in a Stevie Nicks/Lionel Richie or Janet Jackson/Stevie Nicks concert tour.

Something different instead of a soft rock show.

You must have been doing shrumes. I like the song Two Kinds of Love but OMG it was cringeworthy live. The music was good and Stevie did a good job but her duet partner was auditioning for American Idol 15 years in advance. He was trying to do Mariah Carey before she was known. In her klonopin haze she could not see the disaster that it was.

Dude, I hate mushrooms!

Your description of the male singer was spot on, but I understand no guy in her band is going to sing any of her duets well, so my expectations are automatically lower. Maybe I should have said Stevie sounded fantastic on the song. I recall Waddy singing Stop Dragging My Heart in the past and while it might not have been cringeworthy, it sure wasnít good.

Waddy cant sing for sure. As much as I love Chrissie Hynde, I did not care for her on SDMHA. In some ways Waddy was so bad it was cool that it gave the song a raw edge. I also did not care for Stevie's vocal coach singing Leather and Lace. Just too polished for my tastes. But no doubt he could sing.
Believe it or not I think Billy Joel could get into SDMHA and Leather and Lace.

I just saw their Instagram posts confirming they plan to ¬ďfive to seven shows.¬Ē Joel will keep performing solo in-and-around their double-bill shows.

I saw her at the Xfinity Center (aka Great Woods) Sept. 19, and the set was a crowd-pleaser, but for a crowd 50-70,000 strong - not all diehard fans-, she will need to juice up her set. Dreams, Gold Dust Woman, Rhiannon, Landslide, Gypsy, Edge, Stop Draggin', Stand Back, If Anyone Falls are sure things.

Soldier's Angel has to go. Same for Enchanted, even though I know it's one of the songs that rests easily in her vocal comfort zone. When I saw her, she had cut Soldier & Moonlight, because there was an impending lightning storm and she actually started the show early.

Shows that followed, cut Rock & Roll, Moonlight and re-added Soldier. For What It's Worth will probably stay in the set, but at least it's a very familiar song. Still, as someone who has seen her live about 25-30 times, I don't want cover songs. At Great Woods, there were 3 covers in a 16-song set. FWIW, Rock & Roll, and Free Fallin'. FF has grown tiresome for me.

She should really re-examine Talk to Me, Leather & Lace, Sara, Seven Wonders & After the Glitter. I know I Can't Wait isn't going to ever happen again, but I loved it on the RAL tour.

Her duet with Joel could be "Needles & Pins," which was a Billboard Top 40 hit (peaked at #37 on the Hot 100) for her & Tom P. in early 1986. I still have the 45. I know, not likely.

I Cant Wait would be a great opener. It does not need to have the disco swishes. It can be performed full rock version. It does not have high vocals so her range should be able to do it.
She mentioned in an interview many years ago when she was practicing for the Vegas shows that it was practiced but did not translate live very well. Its not an overly complicated song if you tone down all the funky stuff.

"I Cant Wait would be a great opener."

Yes, it would be.

I love the alternate vocal takes.

Dropbox link to all the single edits, remixes and ALTERNATE VOCAL takes:
Alternate vocal takes #2, 3 & 4 are the ones you absolutely want.

I think Enchanted has been in her set ever since the Enchanted Tour. It's fun for her to sing, even though it's not a hit song.

I didn't think she'd do Seven Wonders in a solo set, but who knows if FM will ever tour again so it's her song. I don't know get why she doesn't do Sara in her solo set considering she did it in 2007.

So the Billy shows will definitely have: Stand Back, Edge of Seventeen, Stop Draggin' My Heart Around, Rhiannon, Gold Dust Woman, Outside the Rain, Dreams, Gypsy, Landslide, If Anyone Falls, Wild Heart/Bella Donna, and Enchanted.
If she's given a full set, the surprise songs will be the three covers: For What It's Worth, Free Falling, and Rock and Roll, as well as Leather and Lace (with Sharon and Marilyn), Rooms On Fire, and I think as you pointed out, After The Glitter Fades.
