99.1 PLR celebrates 50 years! This week we are celebrating another great year in our history: 1981!
That year PLR presented Blue Oyster Cult at New Haven Coliseum. Joining them on this killer triple bill was Foghat and Whitford / St. Holmes featuring Brad Whitford and Derek St. Holmes, of Aerosmith and Ted Nugent respectively.
In 1981 Blue Oyster Cult went on tour in support of its eighth studio album “Fire of Unknown Origin,” which included the Top 40 hit “Burnin’ For You.” Blue Oyster Cult loved coming to New Haven. In a four year span from 1978-1981, BOC played the New Haven Coliseum an amazing 5 times!
