The extra material consists of three songs, each fronted by a guest star. Steven Tyler leads the band through "Walk This Way," with Joel apparently taking a break offstage. Roger Daltry sings "My Generation" - I think I spotted Joel once, kind of dancing around in the background. And John Mellencamp, the best of these three bonus performances due to a spirited vocal, brings down the house with "Pink Houses." Again, Joel's participation is basically non-existant. I suppose that's why these three songs were left out of the main presentation. They're pretty cool to see. Talk about getting your money's worth at a show, with all these superstar guests.
There's a lot to like about this lengthy concert. Joel's band is professional, with some great horn playing by Mark Rivera on saxophones and Carl Fischer on trumpet. Special note must be made of the versatile utility woman Crystal Taliefero, who provides support on a variety of instruments and backing vocals. Billy Joel fans won't want to pass on this one.
