Why Did Billy Joel’s Concert Get Cut Short During ‘Piano Man’?

Billy Joel fans were not happy when CBS cut short his performance of ‘Piano Man’ on Sunday.  The performance was part of the special, Billy Joel: The 100th – Live at Madison Square Garden.

The special started late due to the airing of the Masters and then in the final minutes — when Joel was singing his beloved “Piano Man” — the concert abruptly ended in some markets, including here in Hampton Roads.

WTKR shared that the issue was “beyond their control” and happened on a national level.

Due to the overwhelming demand from his legion of fans, Billy Joel: The 100th – Live at Madison Square Garden will be rebroadcast in its entirety on CBS on April 19th at 9:00PM ET/PT.”
