Billy Joel played his second to last Madison Square Garden residency show on Saturday, and brought a very special guest to join him on a couple songs – Phish’s Trey Anastasio. 

The pair teamed for a performance of the Glass Houses tracks “Sleeping with the Television On” and “You May Be Right,” as well as a partial cover of the Derek & the Dominoes classic “Layla.”

Billy is set to wrap his residency on July 25, which will be his 150th show at the Garden. Trey and Phish have also played a lot of shows at MSG — 83, to be exact — prompting MSG to point out the significance of the collaboration.

“No one plays @thegarden more than @billyjoel and @treyanastasio,” the venue shared on Instagram. “Tonight they played together.” 

In addition to the residency shows, Billy has several other dates on the books this year. A complete list of shows can be found at billyjoel.com.
