This Week in History

On March 1, 2007 Philips Arena welcomed the Piano Man to Atlanta. Billy Joel performed his classic hits as well as some of Georgia’s greatest - breaking into “Sittin’ on the Dock of the Bay,” Otis Redding, “Good Golly Miss Molly,” Little Richard, and slipping in a shortened version of “Georgia on My Mind” leading into his hit “Piano Man.”

Joel played on a rotating piano which allowed fans to see him from all angles. The concert lasted approximately 2 hours and 20 minutes with a 20 song set list starting with “Prelude / Angry Young Man” and ending with a four song encore including “Only the Good Die Young,” “Scenes from an Italian Restaurant,” “Georgia on My Mind,” and “Piano Man.”
