Amy Schumer, Jennifer Lawrence Join Billy Joel on Uptown Girl

So perhaps it shouldn’t have been a surprise that they delighted attendees to a public performance of their BFF status at an August 27, 2015 Billy Joel concert at Chicago’s Wrigley Field.

In a video that went viral, Joel asks the crowd if they’ve seen Schumer’s summer comedy box-office hit Trainwreck. The innocent man then starts singing his 1983 hit “Uptown Girl.” Shortly thereafter, Schumer, Lawrence and friends hit the stage and form a dance line. The two film stars shed their shoes and climb onto Joel’s piano to create their own field of dreams.

Besides his record-setting monthly residency at New York’s Madison Square Garden, Joel is touring many of America’s ballparks this summer, including a return to the now-World Series champion Cubs’ home. Tickets are available here. However, you can also try our secondary market partner, Ticket Network, here, where tickets for many of the performances are already available.
