Joel and his band came out to thunderous applause and launched into Miami 2017, a song he wrote in the early 1970s about post-apocalyptic New York City. Throughout his set, he covered many of his signature songs, as well as a few more obscure tracks.

The Grammy Award-winning musician announced in December that he would perform at the famed Big Apple venue every month for as long as New Yorkers demanded.

He is set to perform sold-out shows until September with more being added later in the year. His next show is on Monday and his May 9 show commemorates his 65th birthday.
