In an Instagram post that circulated Tuesday, news about American icon Billy Joel's front row approach at his shows made waves on an account tanksgoodnews. 

After it was revealed that the 71-year-old singer 'never sells tickets to the front rows of his concerts' and instead gives them to fans in the 'nosebleed' seats, Alexa commented, 'A real mensch!'

The 34-year-old daughter of Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley, 66, used the Yiddish term for 'good person' as she sang her father's praises in the comment section.

The post continued to write that in addition to wanting to 'beat the scalpers', Billy 'got tired of all the bored, rich people staring up at him - so now he sends his road crew out to bring down the fans from the worst seats.'

 The caption concludes that his approach ensures that 'there'll be people in the front row that are really happy to be there, real fans.'   

The Instagram account - which spotlights heartwarming stories - took slices of its post information from a 2014 Billboard interview where Billy Joel talked about his shows' energy and good intentions.
