On Wednesday, in his first of two final concerts at Shea Stadium in New York, Billy Joel played some Beatles songs in honor of the group that made Shea a legend as a music venue, started by the Beatles when they played there on August 15, 1965 to about 55,000 people.

During last night's show, Billy played Beatles classics A Hard Day's Night, Please Please Me and She Loves You.
