May 10 (UPI) -- Grammy-winning singer Billy Joel celebrated his 70th birthday with family and friends in New York.
PIX11 said the singer-songwriter and pianist rang in the occasion Thursday with wife Alexis Joel and his daughters, 33-year-old Alexa Ray Joel, 3-year-old Della Rose and 18-month-old Remy Anne, at a show in Madison Square Garden.
The concert marked Joel's 64th sold out show at the venue, according to People. Joel spent time with Alexis and his daughters backstage before performing for the crowd.
Sources said Paul McCartney, Pink, Garth Brooks, AC/DC singer Brian Johnson surprised Joel with video messages during the concert. Alexa Ray joined Joel to perform "New York State of Mind" before singing "Happy Birthday" with Della Rose.
Joel shared videos of Alex Ray and Della Rose serenading him Thursday on Instagram Stories.
"On the one hand, I'm happy to be alive. On the other hand, I don't know how much of a party I deserve just for making it to 70. I mean, it's a work night -- you can't have birthday cake, you can't do any of that stuff," the star said.
