Absolutely incredible. And not just because LeAnn Rimes was involved.

Goodnight Saigon gave me chills and the photo montage during We Didn't Start the Fire was awesome.

First ever concert at Oriole Park.

From the article...

 

Angelos told The Baltimore Sun in 2000 that he was "not going to have it become some kind of honky tonk for various and sundry rock 'n' roll bands."

 

Is that the Angelos-est quote of all time?

So we shouldn't expect to see the Rolling Stones at OPACY any time?

I saw he played Big Man on Mulberry Street. Jealous.

Only “big” song he didn’t play (I’m a fan but not a super fan who knows all of his stuff) was For the Longest Time.

He played basically everything else.

OPaCy was a good venue that seemingly pulled it off with no hiccups.

Only complaint I would have is that they could have had more merchandise lines, especially in the UD, where there was only 1.

But it was packed, everyone seemed to have s good time and he put on a good show.

The band he has with him are a group of really talented people.

He had a woman up there that sang and played tons of instruments. Another guy sang an opera song, which may have been the performance of the night.

Did he play Miami 2017? That's my favorite Joel song.

I don’t believe so.

He played a few “non hits” and even joked that if you need a bathroom break, now is the time.

He didn’t play Downeaster Alexa either. That’s one I like.

He asked the crowd if they wanted Vienna or Just the Way you are. Crowd wanted Vienna, so he never played the other one.

According to this he did play Vienna. And there were a ton of “big” songs he didn’t play lol. He has too many to play all of them

Concert was fantastic. Miami 2017 was probably the only one I was a little disappointed he didn't play, but loved that he pulled out Sometimes a Fantasy. His band has always been extremely talented, and he definitely showcases each one. Mike DelGuidice pulling out Nessun Dorma was completely unexpected and he absolutely killed it. And his horn section is POWERFUL live. Wow.

 

That setlist above isn't entirely accurate, since he didn't play full covers of Bohemian Rhapsody, Your Song, or Layla. Just played snippets while he was talking about the respective artists. And Dancing in the Street was inside River of Dreams.
