If you’re a fan of the legendary hard rock sound of Blue Öyster Cult (BÖC), the place to be is at the Tropicana on May 31. For more than four decades, Blue Öyster Cult has been thrilling fans of intelligent hard rock with powerful albums loaded with songs that have become classics.

Upon the release of Blue Öyster Cult’s self-titled debut album in 1972, the band was praised for music and lyrics that could be provocative, terrifying, funny or ambiguous, all in the same song. The band is often cited as a major influence by other acts like Metallica. BÖC was listed in VH1’s countdown of the greatest hard rock bands of all time.

You’re sure to hear all your favorite hits like “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper” from 1976’s “Agents of Fortune,” “Godzilla” from 1977’s “Spectres” and the hypnotically melodic “Burnin’ for You” from 1981’s “Fire of Unknown Origin.” There are so many to choose from. Here are a few more you're sure to hear.

  • “Cities on Flame with Rock and Roll”
  • “Then Came the Last Days of May”
  • “I Love the Night”
  • “In Thee”
  • “Veteran of the Psychic Wars”
  • “Dominance and Submission”
  • “Astronomy”
  • “Black Blade”
  • “Shooting Shark”

There is one show at 8 p.m. on Saturday, May 31 in the Tropicana Showroom. Tickets are $30, $35 and $40. Get yours at Ticketmaster online or call 1-800-736-1420. You can also get them at the Tropicana Box Office.
