Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, which celebrated its 50th anniversary this year. Joel had only played the song once before, at his regular Madison Square Garden show in May. At that show, Joel spoke about the personal significance the classic album had on him as a young musician: “I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time. Fifty years ago, the Beatles put out an album in 1967, it was called Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. I had just gotten out of high school, it was ‘the Summer of Love’… It was a remarkable album, they were my favorite band, and they inspired me to do what I do now and what I’ve done all my life… this is a tribute to those guys.” Thanks to YouTube user Shane LaRene, you can watch fan-shot footage of the Lambeau rendition below:Billy Joel and his band will play three dates in July, including performances at Madison Square Garden in New York, Progressive Field in Cleveland, and Target Field in Minneapolis. Tickets for the NYC and Minneapolis shows are still available here. You can head to Billy Joel’s website for a full list of his upcoming tour dates this year.last_img read more
