    It’s My Life: Billy Joel Concert Review

    I finally saw Billy Joel in concert!!
    He played at the Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati.
    He played many songs, told funny stories, and basically just put on one heck of a show.
    This was a HUGE concert for me, having grown up on his music.
    He still sings and plays amazing.
    His band is great.
    And of course his songs are timeless.
