The biggest surprise of the night was Joel’s nonchalant introduction of rock singer Joe Elliott whose band, Def Leppard, plays Comerica Park the following night, tonight, with Joan Jett, Poison and Motley Crue.
Joel and his band teamed up with Elliott for Def Leppard’s signature rock hit, “Pour Some Sugar on Me” to a loud ovation afterwards. This may be the first and last time anyone in the crowd will ever see that combination on stage together. Billy Joel with Def Leppard. Fun times.
