THE TKC SATURDAY NIGHT PLAYLIST!!! KAUFFMAN STADIUM BILLY JOEL CONCERT CELEBRATION AND KANSAS CITY LOWER EXPECTATIONS IN 2018!!!



Our blog community can't help but notice that there's just a bit of debate over the merits of the Billy Joel concert announced at the K later this year.

To be fair, hardcore fans were pumped about the return of the Piano Man to this cowtown.

Meanwhile, critics, youngsters and just a few picky music fans were let down by the somewhat pedestrian music choice geared toward mostly dreadful middle-aged-middle-class metro residents.




We won't pass judgement either way but instead offer a quick look on the bright side this evening . . . In a career that spans decades, there are quite a few decent Billy Joel songs which inspire our playlist tonight . . . Here's a quick review of favorite tunes that might apply locally:

Allentown speaks to the growing disparity betwixt rich and poor in Kansas City and across the nation:



Of course, Piano Man is Billy Joel's signature classic that name checks career disappointment which exemplifies local "creative class" regret.



For The Longest Time concludes tonight's list not only because it's the all-time fave Billy Joel song of 40-something women but also because it reminds us that KC celebrates old school acts above all . . .



As always, thanks for reading this week and have a safe and fun Saturday night.

Damn people in KC are way too damn picky!

I don't like him, don't buy a ticket KC people will find an excuse to complain about every thing.

I would've went with "She's only a woman" for all of the #MeToo ladies.

Actually Billy Joel is pretty edgy and not a Trump supporter:

BILLY JOEL TROLLS TRUMP, WEARS STAR OF DAVID AT LATEST MSG CONCERT IN NYC

Don't understand where people get that Trump is an anti-semite.
His son-in-law is Jewish and his grandchildren are half-Jewish.

^^^ Because he says torch carrying white supremacists are very fine people. The KKK puts Jews and Catholics on the same hate list with brown and black people.

He ignored calls by Jewish leaders to denounce specific acts of violence after his inauguration and after Charlottesville.

He didn't bother to show up for the White House Passover Seder, which other presidents attended.

Trump didn't even mention Jews or anti-Semitism on Holocaust Remembrance Day.

He signed the guest book at the Holocaust museum in Israel like he just attended one of his hotel opening. No respect for those tortured or killed. "It is a great honor to be here with all of my friends — so amazing & will NEVER FORGET!"

The 'I can't be a racist because I have a black friend' defense doesn't cut it. Ivanka marring a Jew doesn't prove a thing about Trump's views. Then constantly making stupid & flippant remarks, and ignoring tragic events in history tips people off that you could be a racist, misogynist, or anti-Semite. In Trump's case, the trifecta.

Billy Joel was created by the same PR firm that made The Monkeys in the 1960s.

The album cover of "Piano Man" is still the most terrifying image I've seen to this day.

Someone already pointed out that his hits are already thirty years old, isn't this sort of "nostalgic self-tribute" tour more suitable to the Branson Strip?

Dreadful? You're sounding a lot like geezer hater. Millenials are going to take this once great nation down. And in future years wonder "What happened?"

One of the best performers in the business. Great composer of non-shithole rock. Has one of the best motorcycle shop/museums in the country. Looking forward to some good music for a change.

Well, see, 12:16, the Holocaust didn't happen. So he ignores things that don't happen, because the Holocaust didn't happen. It's a Jew lie.

^^^^^^Jesus dude, did you EVEN go to school? “They’re”??????

I'm sure both Bill Joel fans will be happy until they hear the crappy acoustics.

Royals Stadium did right by pegging Ted Nugent and keeping him away longer years ago.

Joel has good sound engineering they can polish a turd. Billy Joel wiped his ass with every pop singer who played piano.

Billy Joel was way back then!!!

At the time of this scheduled concert Billy Joel will be 69 years old.


This is only possible because Baby Boomers seek to desperately cling onto their memories of youth.

Except that wasn’t me you pants-shitting goon. Everybody hates geezers because they often latch onto a specific phrase say “ lickspittle press”, Barrybathouse” or say “ corophilia” and often repeat it adnausem because they don’t know any better. Fucking dotards.

This coming from the person that uses pants shitting, geezer and dotard in almost every post.
