Billy Joel fans get big surprise at 100th Madison Square Garden show: Bruce Springsteen

The Piano Man meets The Boss. 

As Billy Joel celebrated his 100th concert at Madison Square Garden Wednesday night, he announced to concertgoers that he was going to have a guest sing a duet with him and that the guest was a winner of a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony, WNBC reported.

Bruce Springsteen then came onto the stage to the screams of “BRUCE!”

He sang “Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out,” before he jumped on top of the piano to perform “Born to Run.”

He performed his classics like “New York State of Mind” and “Uptown Girl” and finished his more than two-hour concert with “This Is the Time,” WNBC reported.
