Today’s Blimp Time-Hop

38 years ago, Billy Joel performed live at the Civic Center in Portland for the very first time.  It was on the 52nd Street tour. With BLM spinning the ‘new’ tracks, My Life and Big Shot as well as deeper cuts like Stiletto and Zanzibar, the CCCC was packed to capacity on April 13, 1979 for the Piano Man and his band. This was the first of 5 appearances at Portland’s biggest venue over the years, all of them were sold-out shows. Thanks for all the love, Billy! When ya comin’ back to Maine?

In August, he will be playing Fenway Park for the fourth summer in a row. And you guessed it, that show is already sold-out. It’s what Billy does.

Watch this awesome performance of Zanzibar in ’79…particularly the super crazy Hammond B3 solo that starts at 3:12. Killin’ it!!
