5. Billy Joel Sells Out 12 Straight Shows - 2006
Only legends break records at the Garden. Billy Joel proved his status not just once or twice, but 12 times in a row. Shattering Bruce Springsteen’s 10-show record from 2000, Joel definitely set the tone for iconic performances at MSG. His setlist — consisting of hits like “Piano Man” and “New York State Of Mind” — even got him a banner, appropriately branded with the number 12, raised to the top of the venue’s rafters on the final night of the show. Take a listen to his live album, 12 Gardens Live, to get a better understanding of why people flocked in droves to see this guy.
