He Didn’t Start The Fire

Billy Joel
Madison Square Garden
February 18th

billy joel

This was only the 2nd time I’ve seen BJ.  The first was on his River of Dreams tour at the Capital Centre in 1993 (one of these two shows)

He played ‘We Didn’t Start The Fire’ then

He didn’t last night

I’d consider that single omission a waste of an entire evening

JFGAY BLOWN AWAY WHAT ELSE DO I HAVE TO SAY?????

BUT it wasn’t, cause even if Billy Joel looks like an old mole, he’s still got it!!  And you can tell he’s really enjoying his monthly MSG residency.  He even is semi-sorta letting his fans dictate some his set – asking them to choose between two songs to play, by cheering their choice!  

AND he loves ‘Tush’!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  WHO DOESN’T???????????????

Setlist

Miami 2017 (Seen the Lights Go Out on Broadway) / Pressure / Say Goodbye to Hollywood / The Stranger / Vienna / Summer, Highland Falls / The Entertainer / The Downeaster Alexa / Zanzibar / Movin’ Out (Anthony’s Song) / New York State Of Mind / Allentown / I’ve Been Working On The Railroad (Instrumental) / My Life / Sometimes a Fantasy / She’s Always a Woman / Don’t Ask Me Why / The River of Dreams (with ZZ Top ‘Tush’ interlude) / Scenes From an Italian Restaurant / Piano Man

Encore - Uptown Girl / It’s Still Rock and Roll to Me / You May Be Right / Only The Good Die Young

A Quest Called Vibes

Jack White
Madison Square Garden
January 30th

jack white q tip msg

Last time we saw Jack White ROCK out MSG, it was 2007, and the girl with the bouncy boobs was bouncing her boobs behind him, AND IT KICKED THE FCUKING BALL AND THE BISCUITLISTICS!!!!!!!!  They were two kids, playing to 18k people, and they somehow were able to own a building that’s built for giant acts.  Sure, at the time, they were a big act, but 6 years prior, they were playing the tiny Bowery Ballroom, a place better suited for their raw sound.  But Jack White’s sound now and forever knows no bounds.  ‘Seven Nation Army’ has become a sports stadium rally call, and now, Jack White can fill any sized venue to match those calls

Meg White is still sorely missed, but Jack, 7ish years later, has really done an amazing job to fill her (boobie) void.  Sure, having a full band helps, and at times, his band adds TOO much sound to Jack’s music, but they follow his lead, and we’d follow him anywhere he goes, cause it’s always steady as he goes.  His latest MSG set perfectly blended Stripes tunes with the stronger selections of his solo work + enough of the other side-project ditties (juss like his Roseland show of 3 years ago), but the larger venue made everything seem even larger, more vital.  Having Q-Tip come out to help didn’t hurt neither.  In fact, it cleaned and opened our ears even mo!  [editor’s note – we haven’t used a Q-Tip since 2009]

Setlist

Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground / High Ball Stepper /Lazaretto / Hotel Yorba / Temporary Ground / Cannon / Broken Boy Soldier / Cannon / Love Interruption / We’re Going to Be Friends / Three Women / Black Math (intro only to) Top Yourself / Ball and Biscuit

Encore - That Black Bat Licorice (with Q-Tip) / Excursions (with Q-Tip) / Sixteen Saltines / Astro / Steady, As She Goes / Would You Fight for My Love? / Just One Drink / Blunderbuss / Seven Nation Army
