HUNTINGTON - Long Island's "Piano Man" performed Wednesday night at the Paramount in Huntington.

It had been 11 years since Billy Joel performed on Long Island. Following a big announcement Tuesday morning, tickets sold out in under a minute.

Fans started lining the streets hours in advance with hopes of getting a spot close to the stage.

A portion of proceeds from the show benefits Long Island Cares - The Harry Chapin Food Bank.
