#FBF Watch Garth Brooks and Billy Joel Say Goodbye to Shea Stadium

Joel spent two nights performing his hits with a little help from famous friends like Tony Bennett and Paul McCartney.
But for country fans, the highlight was Garth Brooks joining the Piano Man onstage July 18 to sing the power ballad "Shameless." Joel originally released the song in 1989 on his album Storm Front, and saw it reach No. 40 on the adult contemporary charts. Brooks recorded his own version of the song two years later and took it to the top of the country charts, his seventh No. 1 hit.
Clad in a Mets jersey and backward baseball cap, Brooks belted out the song while Joel accompanied him on the piano. And the crowd went wild when the two dueted on the final verse.
Brooks, who put his career on hold in 2000 to raise his daughters, will be releasing new music this fall as well as heading out on a world tour that kicks off in Chicago in September.
