Wednesday night marked Billy Joel’s 100th show at NYC’s Madison Square Garden and his 54th consecutive since he started his residency, both are records for MSG.

To honor the occasion, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo declared July 18th as Billy Joel Day in the state.

Since it was definitely a night for celebrating, Billy Joel got some help from The Boss at the show.

Before Billy Joel even finished introducing him the crowd was calling out “Bruuuuuuuce.”

Joel said they “go back a long way. We were both on the same record label and got dumped by the same label.” (Bet that record label feels pretty dumb now!)

The two started out with Springsteen’s “Tenth Avenue Freeze Out” and then went on to “Born to Run.”

Bruce Springsteen is currently doing his own run of shows in NYC, Springsteen On Broadway.
