WOUR, along with Garden Entertainment, announced earlier today that Creedence Clearwater Revisited, Blue Öyster Cult and Silver Arrow will play at the Adirondack Bank Center on Sunday, October 20, to round out opening weekend for the Utica Comets. The show will commemorate WOUR’s 50th Birthday and celebrate 50 years of great rock throughout Central New York. This will be the first time Creedence Clearwater Revisited has performed in Utica.

Cosmo and Stu launched their Creedence Clearwater Revisited project to once again perform live in concert the hit songs of Creedence Clearwater Revival -- touchstones of a generation. “The rhythm section, Doug Clifford’s drums and Stu Cook’s bass is a hallmark of Creedence Clearwater Revival,” notes Since their first show, the legendary rhythm section has been thrilled by the outpouring of affection for the new band. World tours and a platinum selling album Recollection followed. The astounding response has been driven in part by new generations of fans who, as Cosmo says, “weren’t even born when the music came out.”

For over four decades, Blue Öyster Cult has been thrilling fans of intelligent hard rock worldwide with powerful albums loaded with classic songs. Indeed, the Long Island, NY-­‐based band is revered within the hard rock and heavy metal scene for its pioneering work. Blue Öyster Cult occupies a unique place in rock history because it's one of very few hard rock/heavy metal bands to earn both genuine mainstream critical acclaim as well as commercial success. The band is often cited as a major influence by other acts such as Metallica, and BÖC was listed in VH1's countdown of the greatest hard rock bands of all time.

Based out of Syracuse, New York, Silver Arrow Band started performing together in 2012 and since then, they have made a name for themselves through high energy performances across the country. They have performed with Imagine Dragons, Beyoncé, Bon Jovi, Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga, Stevie Wonder, Sting, Taylor Swift, and more.

Tickets for the show start at just $49, and are tiered further at $59 and $69, plus fees. Presale tickets are available beginning on Tuesday, September 10 at 10am for WOUR listeners, as well as Comets and Utica City Season Ticket Members, and will run until 10pm on Wednesday, September 11. The general public on-sale will begin at 10 am on Thursday, via the Adirondack Bank Center box office, online at, or by calling 315-790-9070. The show will begin at 6pm.
