I haven't been able to find the exact date or time for this yet, but as the date gets closer, the schedule will be updated.


Joel and his band offer definitive and often transcendent versions of hits, rarities, personal favorites and crowd-pleasing surprises, including duets with guests McCartney ("I Saw Her Standing There," "Let it Be"), Bennett ("New York State of Mind"), and Brooks ("Shameless").

I believe the commercial release date is March 8th from what I read somewhere, but don't hold me to it.

There are 2 DVD's, the one you linked is the documentary that shows a release date of February 8. The one that's coming out in March is the concert footage that will also air on PBS (although I'm not sure if the DVD will include more than what is aired). Amazon shows this DVD being released on March 1 (although the article I linked said the release date was March 8). There is also a 2CD/1DVD set that will be released in March (http://www.amazon.com/Live-At-Shea-Stadium-DVD/dp/B004J88SGW/ref=pd_bxgy_d_text_c), and I assume the DVD is the same.

oh man, thanks for the link to preorder the CD, Paula. Would love to have that. Billy is amazing and the "Shameless" duet with Garth should be worth the purchase alone!

This website - http://www.rttnews.com/Content/EntertainmentNews.aspx?Section=2&Id=1536751&SM=1 - says the PBS airing will be March 9. Still haven't been able to find any information on the PBS website.

It is. You can preorder it on Amazon. I believe there is a CD/DVD combo option as well.

I watched here Saturday night. I thought it was great! I wish I could've been there live :). Hopefully, it makes it into everyone's time zone soon.
