Blue Öyster Cult with FoghatFriday, May 2, 2014
ALL TICKETS PURCHASED FOR THE APRIL 5, 2014 CONCERT WILL BE HONORED ON MAY 2, 2014.
For nearly four decades, Blue Öyster Cult has been thrilling fans of intelligent hard rock worldwide with powerful albums loaded with classic songs. Indeed, the Long Island, NY-‐based band is revered within the hard rock and heavy metal scene for its pioneering work. Blue Öyster Cult occupies a unique place in rock history because it's one of very few hard rock/heavy metal bands to earn both genuine mainstream critical acclaim as well as commercial success.
The band is often cited as a major inﬂuence by other acts such as Metallica, and BÖC was listed in VH1's countdown of the greatest hard rock bands of all time.
The intense creative vision of BÖC's original core duo of vocalist/lead guitarist Donald "Buck Dharma" Roeser, and vocalist/rhythm guitarist Eric Bloom are complemented by Richie Castellano on guitar and keyboards, and the longtime rhythm section of bass guitarist Rudy Sarzo (ex Ozzy, Whitesnake, DIO), and drummer Jules Radino.
BÖC has always maintained a relentless touring schedule that brings new songs and classics to original fans and, as Bloom puts it, "teen-agers with green hair. We need more people with green hair at our shows!"
In the late 1960’s Roger Earl & Lonesome Dave Peverett first toured America as members of the seminal British band "Savoy Brown". Together with guitarist Kim Simmonds, "Savoy Brown" was on the cutting edge of the emerging British blues-rock scene, and they influenced countless musicians on both sides of the "pond". In 1971, wanting to give a more Rock ‘n Roll flavor to the blues-boogie music they were playing with "Savoy", Dave & Roger enlisted lead/slide guitarist Rod Price & bassist Tony Stevens, formed a new band, "Foghat", and the rest is part of Rock and Roll history.
The last few years has Foghat reaching a whole new generation of fans largely as a result of their incessant touring and also due to its songs appearing on such popular home video games as Guitar Hero III, numerous movies such as ‘Dazed & Confused’, ‘Wild Hogs’, ‘Bottle Shock’ and ‘Halloween II’, numerous TV shows and ads such as Honda among others.
Foghat has never stopped touring and recording. The 2010 version of Foghat comprised of Roger Earl, Craig MacGregor, Charlie Huhn, and Bryan Bassett has been together for 10 years since the passing of Lonesome Dave. They continue to tour relentlessly because they just love to play and after every show they go out to meet their fans. They still epitomize that classic blues-rock slide guitar sound and that is what Foghat is all about. IT’S ABOUT THE MUSIC!
