Singers also unite for “Big Man on Mulberry Street” at One Night Only show in Tampa Bay

Billy Joel and Sting kicked off their One Night Only slate of co-headlining summer shows Saturday with a gig in Tampa Bay, with both artists popping up during the other’s set to help sing one of their classic songs.

Joel introduced Sting’s set at Raymond James Stadium, telling the audience, “I saw this guy when he came with his band to the States, and I was blown away. This was the late-Seventies. I thought he was great then, and I think he’s great now. He’s one of my favorite musicians of all-time.”

Sting’s set then opened with a rendition of the Police’s “Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic” with Joel sticking around to help sing it. 

During Joel’s set, Sting appeared onstage to take the lead on “Big Man on Mulberry Street”:
