If you’ve seen Billy recently, you know that, at one point in the show, he gives the audience a choice of songs to choose from. The one receiving the most applause is the one he plays.

At last night’s show at Madison Square Garden, Steve Miller came out and gave the audience a choice between two of HIS songs – “Livin’ in the USA” or “The Joker”. He didn’t wait very long to analyze the applause before launching into “The Joker”. Lol.

Billy Joel played Dodger Stadium in LA Saturday night and Axl Rose joined him for a couple songs.

AC/DC’s “Highway to Hell” has kind of become a staple in Billy Joel concerts. Billy doesn’t sing it, someone else comes out for that while he’s on guitar.

This time that someone was Axl Rose. Considering Axl stepped in on tour last year with AC/DC when Brian Johnson was sidelined for hearing loss, Axl’s got this one down.

That was all well and good… then he came back.

During the encore, Axl returned for “Big Shot.”
