John Michael Montgomery and
Blue Oyster Cult Perform
at KC Auto Show
Opening Night Concert benefits the Automobile Dealers Charitable Foundation
Two music legends, one country and the other classic rock, will take the stage at the KC Auto Show on Opening Night Wednesday, February 28. Country balladeer John Michael Montgomery and rock legend Blue Oyster Cult will come together for one night only for a special concert to benefit the Automobile Dealers of Greater Kansas City Charitable Foundation.
The concert opens at 7 p.m. with John Michael Montgomery’s unique brand of heartfelt music, which is readily-apparent in love songs that have helped set the standard for a generation. His 15 number one singles, including songs like “I Swear”, “I Love the Way You Love Me” and “I Can Love You Like That”, resonate across the pop-country landscape.
For over four decades, Blue Öyster Cult (BOC) has been thrilling fans of intelligent hard rock worldwide with powerful albums loaded with classic songs like the pummeling “Godzilla” and the hypnotically melodic “Burnin’ for You”. Indeed, the Long Island, New York-based band is revered within the hard rock and heavy metal scene for its pioneering work. The 2000 Saturday Night Live “More Cowbell” parody of BOC’s “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper” has become a cult classic. BOC takes the stage at 8:30 p.m.
Tickets are $50 for general admission seating and are available through Ticketmaster and the Bartle Hall box office. Doors open at 5 p.m. and concert-goers have full-access to the Kansas City Auto Show including hundreds of new vehicles, Ride N’ Drives, food trucks and a beer garden. Adult admission Auto Show tickets are also available for $11, you can still hear the concert from standing room only areas.
