PBS' Channel 13 will show "Billy Joel: Live at Shea Stadium" at 8 p.m. Monday night.

This is not to be confused with "Last Play at Shea," the documentary about the same two 2008 Joel concerts at the old ball yard that weaved in stuff about Joel's career, about the Mets and about the history of the stadium and that was shown at Citi Field last summer.

This time it's pure concert footage of Joel's memorable shows closing down Shea as a music venue.

Paul McCartney joined him on stage at the end of the second show.

I was there. It was cool.
