The Last Play at Shea

Just watched a fantastic documentary about the last concert at Shea Stadium with Billy Joel in 2008.

The film artfully weaves together the histories of Shea Stadium, the Mets, NYC and Billy Joel’s career. Throughout the film are clips of performances from the last concert at the stadium before it was retired.

Billy Joel is easily one of my very favorite singer/songwriters. He’s been a part of the soundtrack of my life – just as NYC has been a big part of my life’s landscape.

Watch the film – currently on Showtime if you have it. Or rent it, download it, whatever… You’ll be glad you did.
