Blue Oyster Cult ROCKS!
By Sixela Rife from Reno, NV on 2/15/2009
Crowd Was In To It, Engaging Stage Presence, Great Encores, Great Lighting, Great Sound, Santa Cruz Beach Shows
Casinos, Too Short
Best For:
Everyone, My Friends and Family GO, Reunions

I have loved Blue Oyster Cult since my teens for so many reasons! On the light, I have fond memories of my girlfriend and I putting on our makeup before High School to "Spectres", "Cultosaurus Erectus" and Mirrors. In addition, My sister (2 yrs younger than I) is a BOC fan too and we have had some great times dancing our fannies off at their shows! On another note, Blue Oyster Cults music to me is many things; poetic, historical, cryptic, wicked, transcendent, hard rockin, slow jammin, mystical and I could go on and on! With 5 BOC shows in 2008 under my belt I am still amazed that every show was different. Ok, lets take into consideration that at Casinos, they have a shorter time to play as the Casinos understandably want people in the Casino. The good thing about Casinos hiring in great bands like BOC is that they can afford it. It gives us fans a chance to see our favorites in smaller venues, maybe even get a hotel room in say Tahoe or Reno, meet up with family and longtime friends and make a weekend out of it. My sister, some friends and I saw 2 concerts in Santa Cruz on the Beach. I could tell a speaker on the left side where I was sounded weak, but it didn't bother me! I had traveled 500 miles to see the show, it was my birthday and it was an AWESOME show! I have taken pleasure that everytime I have seen them recently they played another song that they haven't done in years. In Lake Tahoe, CA a few months back the keyboardist joined the band and "Joan Crawford" was off the hook!!!!!!!! Earlier in the year, "The Last Days of May" stole the show. I'm still waiting for "Lips in the Hills", "Astronomy", "The Veteran of Psychic Wars", "Golden Age of Leather" and "The Pact". I highly recommend seeing at least a few BOC shows in the coming years. They just keep getting better and their songs become more poignant everyday! Rock On Sixela Rife

BLue Oyster Cult
By BOC Man from Pine Brook, NJ on 9/28/2008
Crowd Was Not Into It, Poor Sound Quality, Too Short
Best For:
Completely Unfamiliar

I have been a BOC fan for 30 years. I traveled 2 hours by car to see only them. While the opening acts (Vanilla Fudge and Foghat) were good, I paid good $ to seee BOC. Unfortunately, I felt cheated as we could barely hear their vocals! (i.e. weird---there was a young stagehand singing into a mic behind the amps to increase the sound of vocals?) and BOC's MAIN act ended upbruptly after only 1 hour (which wss the same time given to the opening acts?) with no encores because of some curfew ordinance? While I will always be a fan of BOC's music I will have to reconsider seeing them live again in a concert hall, especially one like the Capitol One Theater. Disappointing...

Blue Oyster Cult Concert Tickets

The music of Blue Oyster cult has lasted through the decades as some of the best metal music ever written. From humble beginnings as a collection of students at Stony Brook College in Long Island, the band ascended the ranks to define a decade of music. Get your Blue Oyster Cult tickets to hear classic metal hits like "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" and "Burnin' For You" live!

Blue Oyster Cult began as Soft White Underbelly in the late 1960s. Organized by Sandy Pearlman and Richard Meltzer, the group would record a number of unreleased albums with Elektra Records before signing to Columbia in 1971. It was during this decade that Blue Oyster Cult had its most commercial success.

The band's music has often been associated with many prominent science fiction and horror writers such as Stephen King and Patti Smith. The use of the band's music in the classic John Carpenter film Halloween played a great role in the band's success. In addition, its music videos, which featured heavily on MTV when it was created in 1981, were instrumental in popularizing the music video as a medium.
