BLUE OYSTER CULT-Capital Center for the Arts, Concord NH 11/3/18

Third time in a little over a year and they just keep getting better. After a employee of the Cap Center laid out basic info, another guy came out to introduce the Brooks Young Band. BYB were all decent players with about 5 songs and good covers of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" and "Miss You". Probably the most CHEERFUL band I've ever seen, lots of big grins.

Although BOC played a lot of what You would expect, they played with true passion (Even the dull "Buck's Boogie" was helped by some new arrangements, including a Deep Purple-Ash GTR/Keys back and forth and little Bass/Drum Solos) and raiding the songbook with rarely played songs lately like "Career of Evil", "Dancing in The Ruins", "ETI", "OD'ED on Life Itself" and the magnificent "Hot Rails to Hell". During "Don't Fear The Reaper", the same guy who had introduced Brooks Young was onstage playing Cowbell. Wife found out the next day, it was NH Governor Chris Sununu, which I guess is one way to inspire votes.
