Billy Joel celebrates milestone 65th performance

New York: Veteran musician Billy Joel celebrated a landmark 65th performance at New York City's Madison Square Garden venue with a special banner-raising ceremony.

The 66-year-old "Piano Man" star became the first artist to play 65 shows at the Manhattan arena, breaking a previous record set by Elton John for performing the most headline concerts there, reported Huffington Post.

The triumph was celebrated by hanging a banner from the rafters, a tradition which honours the venue's heroes, joining another celebratory flag which marks Joel's record for playing the most consecutive performances at Madison Square Garden. That record stands at 19.

During the show, Joel paid tribute to his longtime friend Elton, who he has previously toured with, by singing his track "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road".
