      The Eerie Horror Film Festival announced today that they will be presenting an evening of classic rock with Blue Oyster Cult and Foghat on Friday the 13th of May at the Warner Theatre in Erie, Pennsylvania.

      The two legendary bands will co-headline the event and perform their biggest hits on the stage of the historic Warner Theatre, one of the best venues in the region for a night that is sure to wow fans.

      Formed in New York in 1967, Blue Oyster Cult is a rock and roll phenomenon, selling over 24 million albums worldwide, including 7 million in the United States alone.

      Once described as a "thinking man's heavy metal band", Blue Oyster Cult have earned high praises from critics over the years and their music has been featured on movie soundtracks, video games and even served to inspire the now classic phrase, "more cowbell".

      Best known for their hit songs, "Don't Fear the Reaper", "Burnin' for You" and "Godzilla", the group continues to tour and attract new fans young and old.

      Foghat's career began in 1971, pumping out high energy rock and roll with a strong blues influence. By the end of the 1970's they were one of the most popular rock bands in the country with a string of hit songs that included "Slow Ride", "Drivin' Wheel", "I Just Want Make Love to You" and "Fool for the City", tunes that are still in heavy rotation on classic rock stations around the world.

      Like Blue Oyster Cult, Foghat's songs have been featured in several movies and video games.

      A whole new generation of fans has discovered them through Guitar Hero's inclusion of "Slow Ride", which remains their signature tune.

      Blue Oyster Cult and Foghat will be appearing at the Warner Theatre in Erie, Pa., May 13th at 7:30pm.
