Jerry Seinfeld and Sting Join Billy Joel For 100th Madison Square Garden Show

Jerry Seinfeld and Sting joined Billy Joel for Billy’s 100th Madison Square Garden show to pay tribute to Joel as he nears his residency at the iconic New York venue.

Jerry paid tribute to Billy before the third song ‘Vienna’ and then Sting joined Billy to perform Joel’s ‘Big Man On Mulberry Street’ and The Police’s ‘Every Little Thing She Does is Magic.

Seinfeld said, “Billy invited me to come tonight because it’s a special night. He has been doing this residency for a long time and it is really the thing that has for me put the medallion of this magnificent career.

Jerry continued, “There’s three things that make Billy a genius. The voice, the music, the writing of the most beautiful songs. But there’s another thing about Billy that makes him so unique and so special. He captures how we feel living in this particular part of the world, Long Island, New York. He is the companion we have gone through our whole lives. His music is our best friend. I don’t know if he can understand how much his music means to us”.
