Live preview:
Blue Öyster Cult

One of metal’s founding fathers gear up for their second UK gig in six years.

Vocalist/guitarist Eric Bloom previews a rare UK appearance from the veteran New York band who’ll be helping to bring some heat to the winter chill at this year’s Hard Rock Hell.

Blue Öyster Cult’s appearance at the Giants Of Rock Festival in February was the band’s first visit to the UK in six years. 

We almost got to play in London not too long ago, but that plan was wiped out by the Olympics. 

Was it a little surreal to be at an English holiday camp in the dead of winter?

Minehead was a lot of fun… Walking between the buildings much less so. It was great to see our old friends Uriah Heep again.
