  BLUE ÖYSTER CULT TO PROVIDE UNIQUE PERFORMANCE AT STONE FREE
11th June 2017



blue oyster cult

Blue Öyster Cult's appearance at the O2 Indigo for the Stone Free Festival on June 17th will start with a unique performance of their debut album in its entirety in celebration of the 45th anniversary of the initial release.

The full set is being recorded and videotaped in 4K UHD for possible future release.

The eponymous 'Blue Öyster Cult' album was released in 1972 and featured songs such as 'Cities On Flame With Rock And Roll', 'Stairway To The Stars' and 'Then Came The Last Days Of May', all of which the band still play regularly during their concerts, but this will be a rare opportunity for die hard BÖC fans to hear such tracks as album opener 'Transmaniacon MC', 'She's As Beautiful As A Foot' and 'Workshop Of The Telescopes'.



Blue Öyster Cult will be performing the album in full at the London show only. The band will be on stage at 5.15pm. Capacity at the O2 Indigo is limited, so plan accordingly.

Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow headline the event inside the main arena.



BÖC are to undertake a regional UK tour after Stone Free, their first headline UK shows outside of London in nearly a decade.

These five shows are part of the Long Islanders' 45th anniversary tour that will see them play "all the hits and cult classics" throughout Europe and beyond.

In Europe, BÖC will hit several festivals: Graspop, Hellfest, Retro C Fest, Against The Wind and Barcelona Rock Fest along three headline dates with very special guests Queensrÿche in Prattelin, Switzerland, Cologne, Germany and Utrecht, Netherlands.

Tickets are on sale right here.

Blue Öyster Cult UK tour dates are:

Saturday 17th: London Stone Free Festival
Sunday 25th: Manchester Academy
Monday 26th: Newcastle Northumbria University
Wednesday 28th: Nottingham Rock City
Thursday 29th: Glasgow O2 ABC

MONSTERS OF ROCK IN FULL FLIGHT SURE TO BECOME FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

monsters of rock

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
