Long-standing Long Island legends and veteran survivors of transient musical trends, BOC continues their mesmeric legacy of singular rock music by giving their fans what they want touring seminal albums from their illustrious catalogue.
On an enchanting evening at the 2017 Stone Free Festival, fans voted with their feet by packing out the London O2 Indigo Venue to witness a magisterial play through of Blue Oyster Cult’s debut release. Throwing in a few stone wall classics (Godzilla, (Don’t) Fear The Reaper, Tattoo Vampire etc.) Eric Bloom, ‘Buck Dharma’ and their long-established cohort of players, delivered a stunning denouement to the mysterious musical magic they weaved at this unforgettable concert.
Quoted by the band as being as perfect a show as is possible, it is preserved for posterity on this deliciously packaged CD/DVD release which any fan past, present and new will be forever captured by the sublime spell cast by this peerless hard rock phenomenon.
With a new album of original songs slated for an October release, this is a perfect primer for the band whose symbol remains the sign for pure class.
45th Anniversary Live in London By Blue Oyster Cult
