This is footage from a Billy Joel concert filmed live in Moscow in 1987. Joel flips out because he's pissed off at the film crew, who turned bright lights on his audience midway through his performance of the song "Sometimes A Fantasy." The really amazing thing here, aside from just watching Billy Joel knock over his keyboard and smash stuff on stage, is how well he integrates hollering at the film crew into the verses of his song.
