Recorded on October 17, 2014 at the Hard Rock Casino in Northfield, OH, this live performance offers a comprehensive and exciting look at the Blue Öyster Cult repertoire. With over 2 hours of music, the band is on fire, performing some of the finest and most beloved songs from their history, while not forgetting some deeper cuts which will make longtime fans of the band quite happy.
With a history spanning three decades, Blue Öyster Cult has a long history of success. They’ve sold more than 24 million records worldwide, including 7 million in the United States alone. Songs like "Burnin' for You,” “Godzilla,” “Astronomy” and "(Don't Fear) The Reaper,” are true classics and staples of the classic rock genre. Often cited as a major influence by some of the biggest names in hard rock and heavy metal (including Iron Maiden and Metallica), Blue Öyster Cult’s sound has evolved through the decades, touching hard rock, heavy metal, progressive, and psychedelic rock. Sometimes referred to as “the thinking man’s heavy metal band,” due to their often cryptic lyrics, literate songwriting, and links to famous authors, Blue Öyster Cult here offer the first of a series of upcoming live releases which are going to be released during 2020.
