Fans on the East Coast have gotten used to all sorts of other stars joining Billy Joel on stage for his monthly Madison Square Garden shows.
He extended that the West Coast on Saturday (May 13) with Guns N' Roses' Axl Rose and Pink taking part in Joel's show at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.
Rose, who filled in with AC/DC during 2016, joined Joel for a cover of that group's "Highway To hell" as well as Joel's own "Big Shot," while Pink came on stage for Joel's "New York State Of Mind" and her own hit, "Try."
Billy Joel performs Big Shot with special guest Axl Rose at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles on 5.13.17.

Joel also paid tribute to the late Eagles' co-founder Glenn Frey by inserting a bit of "Take It Easy" into "The River Of Dreams."
Joel's next show is May 25 back at Madison Square Garden, and he'll alternate those with stadium dates around the U.S. during the summer.
