If you didn’t already know that Billy Joel has two daughters under the age of 10, now you do, as does everyone who attended his Madison Square Garden residency Tuesday night (December 19th). For his final show before Christmas, the singer welcomed his youngest kids Della and Remy — plus family friend Elvis Costello — on stage as special guests.
Dressed like very chic North Pole elves, eight-year-old Della and six-year-old Remy sang “Jingle Bells” for the MSG audience as their father performed piano accompaniment. It was a big evening for Christmas tunes (according to Setlist.fm), as the Piano Man also tore through covers of “Deck the Halls,” “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” and “Silent Night.”
Costello emerged in the latter half of the set, performing his own “Pump It Up” with Joel as well as a duet version of Joel’s “Allentown.” And though video evidence of the show is scarce at the moment, Joel did share a sweet Instagram post thanking “some special guests at show #97.” See that below.
