Billy Joel Farewell Tour
Billy Joel hasn't released a new record since River of Dreams nearly 20 years ago. The money for concerts, however, was too much to pass up, so he kept touring through the 1990s and 2000s even when he didn't have any new songs to sing. That is, until the tours suddenly stopped with no warning or notice. Billy Joel hasn't played a single real concert since a quick series of make-up dates with Elton John in February and March of 2010. By many accounts, he has no intention of doing shows anytime soon, maybe never again. While his fans certainly had ample opportunity to say goodbye, and the 2008 Shea Stadium shows were pretty spectacular, it would be nice if he did a proper victory lap. He has all the time in the world to fiddle with his motorcycles and hobnob with Howard Stern and Matt Lauer in the Hamptons. The fans need closure.
