Axl Rose joins Billy Joel onstage in Los Angeles

Posted by on May 14, 2017

Living in the New York City area, Billy Joel concerts are no big deal to us. The Long Island resident plays Madison Square Garden once a month, getting flown there and back by helicopter. However, the pianist played Los Angeles last night, and was joined by Guns N’ Roses (and AC/DC) frontman Axl Rose last night for a pair of songs. Fittingly, one of them as a cover of AC/DC’s “Highway to Hell,” which Joel has performed before. The other, “Big Shot” is a 1980’s tale of excess, which thematically is nothing new for Rose. It’s interesting hearing Rose perform Joel’s vocals, which are a lot lower than his normal singing voice. Performing at Dodger Stadium, Rose came out for the AC/DC cover during the set, with “Big Shot” being performed as an encore. Joel was also joined by Pink for his “New York State of Mind.”
