1) Many “Uptown Girls” (and Downtown ones, too) are heading to see the “Piano Man” in concert. They may check out the “Scenes From an Italian Restaurant” and have a bottle of red or a bottle of white, but they won’t try to be a “Big Shot,” because Billy Joel likes you “Just the Way You Are.” Joel, the third-highest selling solo artist of all time in the U.S., was nominated for 23 Grammy Awards and won six. He also is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Joel has not written any new pop/rock material since ’93s River of Dreams album, and that’s OK, but wouldn’t it be great to see what new gems could come from this wellspring of musical talent? Tickets to hear Joel have been selling fast, so don’t be “The Stranger,” find a way to get to the show. 8 p.m. PNC Park, 115 Federal St., North Side. (RH)
