BLUE OYSTER CULT First Ever Australian Tour


Blue Oyster Cult may be the ultimate ‘cult’ band. Revered by punks, metal heads, sci-fi geeks and horror movie fans alike, B.O.C. have carved out a 40-year career via a string of complex hard rock albums and killer live shows. The author Steven King adores them and so does Dave Graney. Their best known track Don’t Fear The Reaper, was a U.S. top twenty hit in 1976 and the album it came from, Agents Of Fortune (featuring a collaboration with songstress Patti Smith) achieved platinum status while their overall catalogue sales are in excess of 24 million. They also provided Radio Birdman with the album title Radios Appear, a lyric taken from the track Dominance and Submission from the Blue Oyster Cult album Secret Treaties.

Most recently B.O.C. have released The Complete Columbia Albums Collection, a 16 CD/ 1 DVD box set comprising all their studio albums from 1972 – 1988; three live albums; a rarities disc and the appropriately named radio broadcast collection: Radios Appear.

The live albums, starting with 1975’s On Your Feet or On Your Knees, clearly demonstrate BÖC’s strength as a live act; they’re a bracingly powerful band, the rock solid support of the rhythm-bass-drums embellished by Buck Dharma’s stinging guitar leads.

Already announced as a co-headliners at the 2013 Dig It Up! Feel are now proud to announce headline shows for Blue Oyster Cult in Sydney & Melbourne. For the these two special performances, B.O.C. will perform the entire show, no support – like wow!

This will be the first-ever Australian tour for Blue Oyster Cult and it’s all thanks to Hoodoo Gurus.
