Kenny Chesney performs Saturday in Pittsburgh at Heinz Field, but he came to town early and made a surprise appearance at Billy Joel’s PNC Park show on Friday night:

As Billy Joel sang “Friday night I crashed your party,” Kenny Chesney was doing exactly that.

Chesney showed up Friday at Joel’s PNC Park concert, strolling onto the stage for the fourth encore song, “You May Be Right,” to share vocal duties as Joel remained at his rotating piano.

The band added some Led Zeppelin “Rock and Roll” riffs, and Chesney didn’t conceal his glee at getting to rock out with Joel, who had invited him up there as a surprise treat for fans. Sure, there had been pre-show speculation about the possibility of such a pairing, since Chesney had arrived in Pittsburgh early for his Heinz Field show Saturday, though it still was a thrilling moment to see two superstars join forces in unannounced fashion.

Not that Joel needed a boost, as he and his sharp band already had sailed into the homestretch of a richly entertaining performance that featured 27 songs, none from this century.
