Foghat and Blue Öyster Cult have been generating genre-defining rock music since the 1970s. Playing together since 2001 after the passing of member Lonesome Dave, the most recent Foghat incarnation continues to give ailing fans a dose of its signature British and American blues-rock slide-guitar and slip-drum soundscapes. Since haunting listeners with the hit “Don’t Fear the Reaper,” Blue Öyster Cult has been mixing new metal music and its greatest hits. Today the band continues to build on its legacy as one of VH1's greatest hard rock bands, and the lesser-known title as the country’s most rambunctious bandana-wearers. Fans can nod their necks through a performance boasting the original core trio of members alongside their longtime bassist and drummer.

Once inside the theater, audiences might think they’ve stepped onto the streets of Venice thanks to the atmospheric ceiling, stonework facades, and gondoliers paddling them to their seats. ####Bethel Woods Center for the Arts Music has permeated the 800 manicured acres where the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts has stood since 1969, when farmer Max Yasgur agreed to let love, peace, and harmony grow wild at the very first Woodstock festival.
