Unfortunately, the days of rock bands being the focal point of modern entertainment are pretty much over. Back in the day, rock bands were everywhere. The driving forces of the time were Zeppelin, Van Halen, Aerosmith, Pink Floyd, Skynyrd, Deep Purple, Sabbath, and The Who.

Another name that belongs on that list is Blue Oyster Cult. Eric Bloom's powerful vocals and Buck Dharma's heavy, aggressive guitar playing made for a one of a kind combination. The band has had it’s fair share of breakups, line-up changes, and re-unions over the years, but they’re finally back on the road again.

Although it's been quite a while since the band has released any new music, I'm thankful that they're at least still touring. Blue Oyster Cult will be coming to Minnesota – playing in Medina at the Medina Entertainment Center. The show will take place on Friday, April 5th at 8 pm (doors open at 7.) You can get a ticket online now for as cheap as $38.
