The Lords of 52nd Street -- including Richie Cannata, Liberty DeVitto and Russell Javors from Billy Joel's band in the 1970s and '80s -- will perform their first concert together in 30 years at The Space at Westbury on Jan. 23.

Tickets for the show are $30-$55 and go on sale Friday at noon through Ticketmaster.

The trio decided to reunite after they were inducted into the Long Island Music Hall of Fame together last year, but was delayed after Cannata was diagnosed with lymphoma.

"I'm so happy to be cancer-free," said Cannata. "And I'm sick of being sick. I'm ready to go out and play."
