Classic Rock groups Blue Oyster Cult and Loverboy will be rockin’ The Arena in Corbin on Sept. 27.
Arena Manager Kristi Balla said tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday at prices of $30 and $40. The venue will be set up for a half-house meaning capacity for the concert will be 3,800.
Blue Oyster Cult is best known for the hits, “Don’t Fear the Reaper,” and, “Burnin’ For You.”
The band got its start in the late 1960s on Long Island, New York.
The band has released 21 albums, landing four singles on the Billboard Hot 100.
Loverboy is best known for the 1981 hit, “Working for the Weekend.”
In a career that spans more than 40 years, the band has released 13 albums, four platinum and one gold.
Both bands have seen their music used in iconic Saturday Night Live skits.
“Don’t Fear the Reaper,” is the featured song in the “More Cowbell” skit starring Christopher Walken and Will Ferrell.
Walken, as producer Bruce Dickenson, repeatedly interrupts a band attempting to record the song to encourage Ferrell’s character to give, “a little more cowbell.”
Band member Donald Roeser told The Washington Post in a 2005 interview that the band members love the skit.
“We all thought it was phenomenal,” Roeser said.
“We will not be allowing audience members to bring cowbells into The Arena,” said Arena Director Kristi Balla
Loverboy’s “Working for the Weekend,” is featured in 2000 Chippendales skit in which Patrick Swayze and Chris Farley compete in a dance-off for a spot as a Chippendales dancer.
Balla said she is working with a booking agent out of Nashville, Tennessee to promote the show.
“It is our first venture with a new partner,” Balla said.
Tickets will be available at The Arena boxoffice and through ticketmaster.com.
