According to the Star review, Billy Joel was the singer-songwriter who best summed up the spirit of the decade. That decade would be the '70s. Apparently, a lot of Tucsonans agreed, as nearly 10,000 fans filled the Tucson Convention Center Arena on Nov. 14, 1978, to hear "The Piano Man" in concert. The crowd was described as "adulatory" as Joel performed many of his hits, including "My Life," "Angry Young Man" and "The Piano Man." This wasn't Joel's first performance in Tucson.
