Madison Square Garden 'Retires' Billy Joel's Shirt
And MSG officials decided to mark the occasion by hoisting a hockey shirt with 'Joel' and the number 12 on the back up to the rafters of the venue, where it will hang for posterity. Such an honor is usually reserved for sporting heroes.
Joel admits he's thrilled but insisted he didn't want fans to forget Springsteen set the amazing record. Using sporting terms, Joel says, "When (baseball legend) Hank Aaron broke Babe Ruth's (home run) record, it didn't make Babe Ruth chopped liver."
Joel will perform his 12th successive sell-out show at Madison Square Garden on Monday night.
