Billy Joel Box Set to Hit Shelves May 20th

Billy Joel will be going back to the USSR with the May 20 release of "A Matter of Trust -- The Bridge to Russia," a multi-product celebration of his history-making 1987 shows in Moscow and Leningrad.

Joel was the first Western rock act to take a full touring production into the then-USSR, playing three shows in each city. The 1987 "Kohcept" (i.e. "Concert") live set will be expanded into a two-CD live album with 12 previously unreleased performances -- including a rehearsal version of the Beatles' "She Loves You" -- while the DVD/Blu-ray will expand on the 1987 "Live in Leningrad" HBO special with six previously unreleased songs.

A Deluxe Edition box set, meanwhile, will include the recent Showtime documentary "A Matter of Trust -- The Bridge to Russia" as well as a book containing photos and new liner notes written by tour publicist Michael Jensen, photographer Neal Preston and journalists who covered the trek. Joel next plays on March 9 in Toronto.
