Paul Simon Joins Billy Joel At Nassau Coliseum

(Radio.com) In Long Island, Nassau Coliseum is an iconic venue, the home of the NHL's Islanders (who are moving to Brooklyn's Barclays Center next season). And, on Tuesday night, for its last major event, the building hosted one more concert by L.I.'s most iconic artist: Billy Joel.

Joel, of course, has an open-ended residency across the river at New York's Madison Square Garden, where he's been playing one concert per month since January of 2014, and will continue to do so indefinitely. But he's always been held near and dear to Long Islanders, much as Bruce Springsteen is in New Jersey, or Bob Seger in Detroit.

And at last nights show, the "Piano Man" was joined by another New York icon, Paul Simon, who, in the interest of honesty, admitted that he's actually a fan of the Islanders' arch-rivals, the New York Rangers. Boos ensued. Read more here.
