Album cuts such as “Summer, Highland Falls,” “Miami 2017 (Seen the Lights Go out on Broadway)” and “Goodnight Saigon,” with a group of military singers accompanying Joel and his band, supply some of the evening's most resonant moments.

The farewell party gets extra star power when Brooks belts his Joel-penned hit “Shameless,” Bennett lends his famed voice to “New York State of Mind,” and McCartney revisits the Beatles' seminal Shea show with “I Saw Her Standing There,” before closing the festivities appropriately with “Let It Be.” The DVD includes bonus performances by Steven Tyler, John Mellencamp and Roger Daltrey.
