The band’s hit “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper” has been featured in everything from the movie “Halloween” to the infamous “More Cowbell!” sketch on “Saturday Night Live.” The group’s songs “Burning For You,” “In Thee,” “Shooting Shark,” and more hits helped them sell over 24 million records. The band influenced bands such as Metallica, Twisted Sister, and Widespread Panic.
Blue Öyster Cult started in 1967, at Stony Brook College in Long Island, New York, under the name Soft White Underbelly. In 1974, with the release of a third album “Secret Treaties,” Blue ?yster Cult was propelled to the spotlight and “Secret Treaties” would become the first of many gold albums. For the next decade and a half, the band had major success.
Don’t miss a chance to hear not only “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper” but also “Burning for You,” “Godzilla,” “Cities on Flame With Rock N' Roll,” and “Shooting Shark” when the Blue ?yster Cult comes to Newberry.
