Released in September 1977, The Stranger is Joel’s fifth studio album and a definitive piece of the 1970s musical landscape. It captured the hearts of millions. The Stranger garnered critical acclaim, winning two GRAMMY Awards in 1937, including Record and Song of the Year. The album features hits that dominated the Billboard 100, such as “She’s Always a Woman,” “Movin’ Out,” “Just the Way You Are,” and “Only the Good Die Young.”

Classic Albums Live meticulously recreates this album live. Founder Craig Martin emphasizes, “We don’t dress up or wear any costume. We put all our energy into the music. We want the performance to sound exactly like the album.” This philosophy ensures that fans experience The Stranger just as they remember it, note for note, bringing nostalgia and new appreciation to life.
