Three former members of world-famous bands Blue Öyster Cult and the Alice Cooper group are coming to Corby.
Blue Coupe includes Dennis Dunaway, bassist of the legendary Alice Cooper group, alongside multi-instrumentalist Joe Bouchard, who founded Blue Öyster Cult with his brother, drummer Albert Bouchard.
With the original Alice Cooper group, Dennis co-wrote smash hits including I’m 18, School’s Out, and Under My Wheels while Albert and Joe were co-writers and arrangers of many of Blue Öyster Cult’s biggest hits including Cities on Flame with Rock and Roll, Hot Rails to Hell and Astronomy (covered by Metallica). Joe, Albert and Dennis have sold over 15 million albums and have been awarded more than 30 gold and platinum records worldwide.
In 1973 Blue Öyster Cult opened shows for the Alice Cooper group on a record-breaking tour of outdoor festivals and sold-out arenas that made the cover of Forbes magazine for the highest grossing tour of the year. As Alice Cooper became world famous with hits like No More Mr Nice Guy and Elected, Blue Öyster Cult continued with their own sold-out tours with hits like (Don’t Fear) The Reaper and Burnin’ For You.
Blue Coupe have found continuing glory with their highly acclaimed album, Tornado On The Tracks, which had multiple Grammy considerations in 2011 and 2012, including Angel’s Well featuring Robby Krieger, legendary guitarist for The Doors.
They are appearing at The Raven Hall, Rockingham Road, Corby, on Friday, February 1. For details and tickets call 01536 202313.
