He has been inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and has received numerous industry awards.  His music has also served as the inspiration and score for the hit Tony Award-winning Broadway play “Movin’ Out.”  Recently, Joel was honored by Steinway & Sons with a painted portrait that hangs in Steinway Hall in Manhattan.  Joel is the first non-classical pianist to be immortalized in the Steinway Hall collection.  He played the final concerts at Shea Stadium to more than 110,000 fans.
