"On Tour Forever" is the name of Blue Oyster Cult's latest trek as the classic rockers continue to tour the world. They will play Gun Lake Casino in September.

Since opening ten years ago(!) in 2011, Gun Lake Casino has expanded more than once. In 2017, they added more gaming space, the buffet and Stage 131. The latest expansion, in April 2021, revealed a $300M project opening in phases that will include a year round oasis as part of the resort hotel. Another restaurant is planned and nightlife entertainment space. We're not sure yet when, exactly, the first phase will be complete, but if you've driven US-131 you know they highway construction is in progress for the new interchange at the exit to the casino. You can see a time-lapse video of the construction HERE.

Entertainment events are currently on hiatus, but live, in-person concerts will be returning by September with Blue Oyster Cult playing Gun Lake Casino. Nearing their fiftieth year as an outfit, a Saturday Night Live skit featuring more cowbell brought BOC to a whole new audience in 2000. Founding guitarist Buck Dharma and Eric Bloom (vocals, stun guitar) have played on all fifteen albums from their eponymous 1972 debut to 2020's The Symbol Remains. "Don't Fear the Reaper," "Burnin' for You" and "Godzilla" are classic rock staples, and this band has a robust catalog.

More details (and more cowbell) coming soon as we get back to live entertainment at Gun Lake Casino with rock legends Blue Oyster Cult.
