Billy Joel


Moda Center (map) North
Fri., Dec. 8, 8 p.m. 2017 21+


In times like these—when families feud, when the news is a screaming apocalypse, when there are motherfucking Nazis—only one man can bring us together. That man is Billy Joel, the Prince of Long Island and the Troubadour of our Dreams. Hospice-bound geriatrics whisper “Only the Good Die Young” as they tremble and fade; fat babies, warm in the womb, squirm in amniotic fluid to the beat of “Movin' Out”; every time He does karaoke, Jesus insists on doing “We Didn't Start the Fire”; Satan's ringtone is “Uptown Girl.” And now, the Piano Man himself shall bless Portland. His show is, of course, sold out, because our love of Billy Joel is all we have left, and we shall cherish him, and he will heal us. ERIK HENRIKSEN
