2017: BOC still on tour forever!!
Have you got anything to contribute to this page? Reviews, missing gig support band/venue information, ticket stubs, posters, handbills etc etc - if so, let me .
I took a nice little plane ride down to San Diego for some BOC!
The casino is near El Cajon, about 30 minutes east of San Diego. Nice little place, not too smoky. I was almost ejected for sneaking in a beer. Dry casino? Who knew? There was a couple of bars in the theater.
Danny Miranda on bass for this show. My first time seeing him since 2003. The band performed a ripping set for the appreciative audience. It was great to get some Tattoo Vampire!
It appeared we would not get an encore, Buck was pointing at his watch. Then boom! Out they come for some Hot Rails and Cities!
Another rock star performance form the Oyster boys! Thanks guys!
January 20, 2017- Albuquerque, NM: Danny Miranda playing in-place of Kasim...
Danny M. on bass showed late had some kid Andy fill in for a few songs.
The setlist was same as Albuquerque, except for Hot Rails as opening encore.
Cache Creek is a casino about 45 minutes North East of Sacramento.
Almost did not make this one. There were car accidents blocking all the roads. I left my office at 6:30 for a 45 minute drive. Ended up arriving at the casino at 8:15 for an 8 o'clock show. Boo!
I run to will call, run to the music hall, run to my seat, the Game of Thrones starts. I can't believe it, the one time I am happy that a band starts late.
The guys almost burned down the place. They absolutely killed it. Wonderful audience. Richie received a tremendous ovation for his Last Days solo, deservedly so.
When it was Buck's turn, he kicked out one of his cables, oops! He got it back in and started his solo on time like a champion. He did it again during Cities.
Great energenic performance! Same set they have done for the past few shows, minus Hot Rails.
We made the 4 hour trip to Everett WA to see The Amazing Blue Oyster Cult!!! This was show 44 for me.
A great show. The band was into the show. I had a blast hanging out with great friends before the show and making new friends during the show.
I can't wait to see them in March.
My morning started by running into Mr. Radino in the Sacramento airport. He was kind enough to chat with me for a bit. While this was going on, Mr. Sulton walks by.
Then I go to the gate, Richie and Andy sit right behind me. Am I on the same flight? Yes!! Eric, Buck and the other crew member (sorry I forget his name) sit down. I am in fanboy heaven!
It was hard not to bother them, I did not. Entering the aircraft, folks are having a bit of trouble stowing their luggage, no worries, I will chat with Mr. Roeser while I wait! Score! What fun to be on the same plane.
Give it up for the folks in the Pacific Northwest. They stood up right when the band came on, not many people sat down all night. I believe the band felt it too.
Strong, rocking performance for two hours! 18 song set list! Wow! Last Days was an event! ME 262 was f'ing metal. All around wonderful performance!
A local group called Medicine Hat opened. 8 piece band. I guess I would classify them as Canada rock. They were alright. Very good musicians.
Another fantastic evening of BOC! Thanks guys!
A freight rep I deal with invited me to hang out in Vegas the same weekend BOC was in town - score!! The Golden Nugget casino has a really nice showroom. Nice comfy chairs. Not a bad seat in the house.
A slamming, awesome rock show from the Oyster boys. Good audience. These guys just keep getting better with every performance.
Mr. Radino has been on fire this year! Nice ovations for Buck and Richie for the Last Days solos. Thanks for the rock guys!!
