Blue Ӧyster Cult

Newberry Opera House presents Blue Ӧyster Cult October 4. First performing at local bars and taverns in Upstate New York, Blue Ӧyster Cult went on to influence rock, metal, and even pop culture. 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, including Burning For You, In Thee, and Shooting Shark, helped them sell more than 24 million records. The band influenced bands such as Metallica, Twisted Sister, and Widespread Panic. Expect guests to stand and dance along at the performance. If you would like to sit, please consider the balcony or orchestra boxes.
