Billy Joel brings the curtain down at Shea Stadium

Built in 1964, Shea Stadium was the home of the New York Mets for 45 years. Designed as a multi-purpose stadium, Shea first met rock 'n' roll when The Beatles appeared there August 15, 1965, establishing Shea as the premier stadium for the world's greatest bands. The Who, The Police, The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen and The Clash all played Shea.

The Last Play At Shea, staged on July 16 and July 18, 2008 before a combined 110,000 fans, comprised the final performances ever at the historic stadium. Live At Shea Stadium contains two and a half hours of hits and album favorites, featuring special guests Paul McCartney, Tony Bennett, Garth Brooks, John Mayer, John Mellencamp, Steven Tyler and Roger Daltrey.

Chronicling the intersecting histories of the landmark Shea Stadium and legendary performer Billy Joel is the documentary The Last Play at Shea. New York is the backdrop and Billy Joel's historic concert is the soundtrack to this engaging look at the highs and lows of the New York Mets and the music career of Joel. The Last Play at Shea  interweaves interviews with players, performers and those who were there - including Christie Brinkley, Sting, Tony Bennett, Garth Brooks, and others - with exclusive concert footage from the good-bye performances in July 2008.

Live At Shea Stadium - available now on DVD, Blu-Ray, DVD/2 CD set, or bundled with the documentary The Last Play at Shea - captures the music and memories of a generation while The Last Play at Shea - available now on DVD - tells the shared history of an iconic venue and performer. After 45 years, two World Series championships for the Mets, The Beatles and The Last Play At Shea, the final section of Shea Stadium was torn down in 2009.
