On November 4th, for the first time, Billy will release Live At Yankee Stadium as a double-disc CD and Blu-ray containing 22 performances from his historic two-day run at “The House That Ruth Built” on June 22nd and 23rd, 1990. All tracks have been remixed from the original multi-tracks and feature 11 completely unreleased performances, including “Uptown Girl,” “Only The Good Die Young,” “Allentown” and more.
Billy Joel, who was born in the Bronx, recalled his emotions of actually playing the hallowed stadium back in 1990: “Yeah, Yankee Stadium was a whole jump in the level of things. I don’t think we had headlined stadiums before that. But that, I think, was our first major stadium gig. And no one had really played Yankee Stadium. We were, I think, the first major headline act to sell a concert at Yankee Stadium on our own. It was really, really exciting. I mean, this is in ‘the House the Ruth built’ — there you are, you’re playing there! They’re comin’ to see you — not the Yankees. It was huge. . . just the hugeness of it all was staggering, I remember that.”
