Billy Joel celebrated his milestone 70th birthday with a New York City concert and the event was a family affair.
Joel performed in front of a soldout crowd at Madison Square Garden on Thursday. The six-time Grammy winner celebrated his birthday backstage with his family before taking to the stage.
The musician invited his eldest daughter, 33-year-old singer-songwriter Alexa Ray Joel to perform “New York State of Mind”. Eager to make the most of her time onstage, Alexa invited Joel’s 3-year-old daughter Della Rose to sing the icon “Happy Birthday.”
Peter Frampton made a special guest appearance, performing a number of songs with Joel. Several birthday video messages were played on the big screen, including well-wishes from Paul McCartney, Don Henley and Brian Johnson.
Joel has performed a ridiculous 64 soldout events at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
