Blue Öyster Cult (24359)

Classic Rock band Blue Öyster Cult takes the stage at the Palmdale Amphitheater this Saturday, July 20, as the city’s summer concert series continues its ninth season.

Nicknamed ‘the American Black Sabbath,’ BÖC released their self-titled debut album in 1972. Over the years, the band has released 14 studio albums, six live albums, seven compilation albums and nine charted singles, including “(Don’t Fear) the Reaper,” “In Thee,” “Burnin’ for You,” “Joan Crawford,” “Roadhouse Blues,” “Take Me Away,” “Shooting Shark,” “Dancin’ in the Ruins” and “Astronomy.”

Individual concert tickets are $10. A limited number of VIP tickets are available for $20, which includes express entry and seating at the front of the stage, ensuring that VIP ticket holders can arrive just before the concert and still get one of the best seats in the house. VIP seating is theater style (first-come, first-served), with chairs provided courtesy of the Antelope Valley Mall.

Tickets are available at the City of Palmdale website and at the recreation and culture office, located at 38260 10th St. East, open Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Cash, check, Mastercard and Visa are accepted. Tickets will also be available the day of the concerts on a cash-only basis.

Guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets. Carry-in food, beverages, coolers, alcohol and pets are not permitted. Food, beer and wine will be available for purchase.
