Posting this in here so as not to ignite the grand setlist debate again, as Billy Joel is obviously not metal in any way.

If any of you have ever seen this tribute band, Big Shot, you would know that they are INCREDIBLE. Easily the best tribute band to anything I've ever heard. The instrumentation from all players was spot on, and singer/piano player Michael Delguidice is absolutely astounding. Technically this was an amazing performance, but I could've done with a couple more songs. The band played for 2 hours and 10 minutes, which for a standard headlining slot was really good, but it was an "evening with" show, so it was over by like 10:20, which felt really weird. Also could've done without the random covers of OTHER artists. But oh well.
