Legendary Rock Band Blue Oyster Cult Comes to The Capitol Center
Classic rock legends Blue Öyster Cult (BÖC) will be appearing live in concert at the Capitol Center for the Arts (CCA) in Downtown Concord, NH on Saturday, November 3, 2018 at 8PM.
For more than four decades, Blue Öyster Cult has been thrilling fans of intelligent hard rock worldwide with powerful albums loaded with classic songs. The Long Island, NY-based band occupies a unique place in rock history because it's one of very few hard rock/heavy metal bands to earn both genuine mainstream critical acclaim as well as commercial success. The group is often cited as a major influence by other acts such as Metallica and BÖC was listed in VH1's countdown of the greatest hard rock bands of all time.
Upon the release of BÖC's self-titled debut album in 1972, the band was praised for its catchy-yet?heavy music and lyrics. Blue Öyster Cult's canon includes three stone-cold classics: the truly haunting "(Don't Fear) The Reaper", the pummeling "Godzilla", and the hypnotically melodic "Burnin' for You".
Tickets for Blue Öyster Cult are $55 | $45 | $35, plus any applicable fees for phone/Internet sales. They may be ordered by calling the Capitol Center for the Arts at (603) 225-1111 or online at ccanh.com. Tickets may also obtained at the Center's box office at 44 South Main St., Concord, NH, which is open Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 11AM to 6PM and Saturdays from 11 AM to 2PM.
The award-winning Capitol Center for the Arts (ccanh.com) inspires, educates, and entertains audiences by providing a quality venue for the performing arts as well as a wide range of professional-level, artistically-significant presentations. The Center is conveniently located off Rt. 93 in downtown Concord, New Hampshire and is close to several quality restaurants, shopping boutiques, and other area attractions. The facility first opened in 1927 as the Capitol Theatre, a prime stop on the Vaudeville circuit; it later became Concord's premier movie house and concert hall. After closing in 1989, it underwent a multi-million dollar renovation / modernization and reopened in 1995 as the Capitol Center for the Arts. Today, the Capitol Center is home to the 1304-seat Chubb Theatre, the Spotlight Café, The Governor's Hall ballroom, and the Kimball House, a Victorian mansion. Its newest venue, the Bank of New Hampshire Stage at 14-16 S Main St, is scheduled to open in Spring 2019.
