Billy Joel

Billy, who had been rehearsing with his band at the Huntington theater last week for his upcoming European tour, made a “spur-of-the-moment” decision to play there for his first public Long Island show since he played Nassau Coliseum with Elton John in 2002.

Tickets for the Paramount show are $79.50-$150 and available only through Ticketmaster, 800-745-3000, Ticketmaster.com. Stephen Ubertini, co-owner of the Paramount, says Billy decided to rehearse at The Paramount after seeing concerts at the venue and enjoying himself. “It’s the ultimate compliment for us that he’s chosen to play here,” he says. “It’s a watershed moment.”

If you only knew the problems experienced in trying to buy a ticket; how this whole thing was handled by ticketmaster, you would not use them again. Maybe it is just too easy to use them for a show you had planned weeks ago but only announced it the day before. Maybe if you put some thought into how the tickets would get distributed instead of utilizing a corrupt ticket distribution system, you would have had more blue collar hard working fans there instead of the fat cats and nepotism that got your crowd into the Paramount Theater tonight. Maybe if you had a more competent person running your ticket system you could have assembled a less corrupt method of selling tickets to your fans in the time you had there would have been less $700 - $4500 tickets being sold on Stubhub. Am I pissed, yes, and I'm tired of these special events being filled with the exact same people, these fat cats and gold chainers, you claim you hate to see in the front section of your concerts. These same people are the only ones who can afford those scalper prices, but get free tickets or access to tickets though your 'connections'.

My wife and I tried to get tickets online and we got shut out. We are both big fans of your's and have seen you at numerous venues over the years. Unfortunately we did not fast enough computers to get through and purchase the tickets.

The thing that angers us the most is that there are people charging outrageous prices for tickets to this show. I know this is something that is unavoidable, but, it's shameful that someone other than the charity organization and the fans would benefit from this concert.

On another note, I am not sure if Mr. Joel is reading this, but, my friend had a great idea that maybe you would consider doing, record the concert and sell it on a CD, DVD, and of course as a download on iTunes, with proceeds going to the charity organization, that way, the true fans would were not lucky enough to purchase tickets for tonight's concert will still be able to see and/or listen to the concert and also help out the charity.

I have to applaud Billy Joel and the Paramount for playing this event for an excellent cause.

That being said, it saddens me that people have exploited it for financial gain. With a limited amount of tickets, real fans are reserved to paying exhorbant Ticketmaster fees ($20+ per ticket) or outrageous scalper prices (prices ranging from $680 to $5000). These sites should take the lead of Billy Joel and the Paramount and contibute part of their proceeds to the cause.

Dear SME/Billy Joel,

Please consider selling tickets to true Long Island fans who actually know and care deeply. Intimate sessions require intimate fans who actually know Motorcycle Song, Oyster Bay, & Half A Mile Away - but won't hear these cuts in large venues since they are too obscure for most.

If you have a LI zip code, you should be able to buy tickets Smiling

Best Regards,
Jonathan - A 25 year old Billy Joel fan, Long Beach NY
