Billy Joel just added another concert date to close out Shea Stadium. He’ll play another final show on Friday, July 18. The July 16 date was the fastest sell out in Shea history, with than 50,000 tickets sold on http://www.507TIXX.com in 48 minutes. Tickets for the second go on sale this Saturday, Feb. 23 at 9 a.m. at www.507TIXX.com and by phone at (718) 507-TIXX.
In more Shea-related rock news, a new documentary called The Clash Live: Revolution Rock will air on PBS March 1 at 11 p.m. and March 5 at 2 a.m. It’ll be a preview of the April 15 DVD release which will include clips from The Clash’s famous 1982 performance at Shea. We were born that year but we’d give up a hearty “Piano Man” performance to hear “London Calling” in that stadium any day. Dang! At least we have PBS. Thanks to Brooklyn Vegan for the heads up on this.
