Billy Joel Joins Sir Paul Mccartney At Yankee Stadium
Branding the singer/songwriter "a friend of New York and a friend of Yankee Stadium", MCCartney welcomed Joel for a rousing rendition of I Saw Her Standing There towards the end of his second and final night at the baseball mecca.
The get together came almost three years to the day when MCCartney made a surprise appearance onstage with Joel in 2008 during the My Life hitmaker's Shea Stadium farewell just miles away.
Joel also appeared as MCCartney's guest a year later (09) when the former Beatles star played the first concert at New York's Citi Field.
Saturday night's concert was a spectacular for the ages - with MCCartney performing a string of solo and Beatles hits.
He also paid tribute to John Lennon with the song Here Today, and he began Something on a ukelele once owned by George Harrison.
