Following their previously announced appearance at Stone Free Festival on Saturday 17th June 2017 where they’ll headline the Indigo O2 stage, the Long Island rockers will play dates in Manchester, Newcastle, Nottingham and Glasgow. The quintet of shows are part of their 45th anniversary tour that will see them play ‘all the hits and cult classics’ across Europe and beyond.

“I was fortunate enough to see Blue Öyster Cult at O2 Forum Kentish Town, London for their 40th Anniversary show of their 1976 album ‘Agents Of Fortune’ as well as classic hits. Songs such as ‘Godzilla’, ‘Born To Be Wild’, ‘Harvest Moon’ and the iconic ‘(Don’t Fear) The Reaper’ (to name a few) have stood the test of time and left the audience buzzing with joy and excitement. The fact that they are allowing more people around the UK and Europe to experience the elation that comes from a BÖC concert is a wonderful thing.” – Glenn Sargeant Just Listen To This

Tickets are on sale tomorrow morning at 9am on Friday 24th February 2017.
