Blue Oyster Cult celebrates 30 years of incredible rock with their new DVD home video "A Long Day's Night." All the hits and fan favorites were recorded live June 2002 at the Navy Pier / Skyline Stage in Chicago. This title, along with the companion CD is the first official live release from Blue Oyster Cult in twenty years and truly highlights the band's phenomenal career. DVD highlights include over 2 hours of concert, rare interview footage, behind the scenes coverage, fan interviews, bio & discography information.
For a band that's been around the better part of three decades, Blue Oyster Cult certainly didn't play like old fogies when they took the stage in Chicago for a concert on June 21, 2002. That memorable show has been preserved on A Long Day's Night
, so titled because it took place during the summer solstice. For two hours, guitarist-vocalist Buck Dharma and his bandmates regale a revved-up crowd with such Cult classics as "Burning for You," "Last Days of May," "Godzilla," and, of course, "Don't Fear the Reaper." It's initially off-putting to watch these clean-cut middle-aged men rip through the BOC songbook, but their chops, enthusiasm, and hooks are still there, so--like the Stones--Blue Oyster Cult could keep going until actual old age comes a-knockin'. --Kevin Filipski
