Five-member band Blue Oyster Cult rocks Stateline this weekend with a performance in the intimate Harrah’s Lake Tahoe venue.
“Pioneering the heavy metal style while providing inspiration to psychedelic jam bands and arena rockers alike, genre-benders Blue Oyster Cult offer the world a taste of the wild side,” states the band’s Facebook biography.
The band formed on a college campus in 1967, and over 15 musicians held stints as Blue Oyster Cult members.
“The group has been known to incorporate elements of science fiction and dark occultism into their jaw-dropping live show, and this allegiance to dynamic and masterful performances has led to the group being covered by everyone from Metallica and HIM to more,” according to the bio.
Blue Oyster Cult’s hits include songs such as “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper,” “Burnin’ for You” and “Godzilla.”
“Riff-heavy and head-banging while intelligently hook-laden, the band remains a staple among the heavy metal greats,” concludes the Facebook biography.
Blue Oyster Cult takes the South Shore Room stage at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe on Saturday, Dec. 17, at 7:30 p.m. The venue is located at 18 U.S. 50 in Stateline, Nevada.
