Blue Öyster Cult will bring their unique take on rock music to the Chevy Park stage Wednesday, Sept. 1 during the 2021 Great New York State Fair.
The band was founded in the late '60s with members Eric Bloom (vocals, stun guitar), Donald "Buck Dharma" Roeser (lead guitar, vocals), Allen Lanier (keyboards, guitar), and rhythm section brothers Joe Bouchard (bass, vocals) and Albert Bouchard (drums, vocals). With relentless touring, Blue Öyster Cult grew their fanbase, and scored their biggest hits with "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" and "Burnin' For You," both quintessential rock songs that remain popular to this day. Now nearing their fifth decade, Blue Öyster Cult is still "On Tour Forever," playing shows to sold-out crowds in the United States and abroad.
Blue Öyster Cult joins a lineup of more than 50 national touring shows presented in the Chevrolet Music Festival, the largest free music festival at any state fair in America.
