When the album first came out 35 years ago, Rolling Stone called The Wall the "stunning synthesis" of all the dark themes that haunted and electrified the music of Pink Floyd, one of the most influential bands in the history of popular music. Now, Which One's Pink?, an authentic and exciting Pink Floyd tribute band, commemorates this anniversary by playing the (double) album in its entirety, from "In the Flesh" to "Mother" to "Comfortably Numb" all the way to "Outside the Wall." Founded in 1997 by musician-turned-lawyer Larry Isenberg, Which One's Pink? has cultivated a rabid following with its impeccable musicianship and astonishing visuals. Recently profiled on World's Greatest Cover Bands on AXS TV, the band heads to Pacific Amphitheatre to recreate The Wall brick-by-brick, song-by-song. Ticket includes admission to the Orange County Fair. Learn More

About Blue Oyster Cult:
Eric Bloom: lead vocal, Buck Dharma: guitar, Richie Costellano: Bass, Jules Radino: Drums Rudy Sarzo-Bass The missing link between the Velvet Underground, KISS and the nascent punk-rock movement of the late '70's, Blue Oyster Cult evolved out of the Stalk-Forrest Group which first came together as the psychedelic Soft White Underbelly on the campus of Stony Brook University on Long Island, NY. Supposedly, the band's producer Sandy Pearlman got the idea for the name while reading a recipe for Blue Point oysters. The band's noirish imagery was symbolized by their logo, the ancient symbol of Cronos, the Titan god who swallowed his son, the Grim Reaper. This ain't the summer of love," snarled Blue Oyster Cult singer Eric Bloom, resplendent in studs and black leather, back in 1976 on the band's platinum-plus best seller, Agents of Fortune, and the sentiment is perhaps even more revealing today.
From the beginning, Kansas achieved success by playing only their original music. This "garage band" from Topeka released their first album in 1974.
The band has produced eight gold albums, three sextuple-Platinum albums (Leftoverture, Point of Know Return, Best of), one platinum live album (Two for the Show) and a million-selling gold single, "Dust in the Wind." Kansas appeared on the Billboard charts for over 200 weeks throughout the '70s and '80s and played to sold-out arenas and stadiums throughout North America, Europe and Japan. In fact, "Carry On Wayward Son" was the #2 most played track on classic rock radio in 1995 and went to #1 in 1997. In 1998, Kansas released an orchestral CD, Always Never the Same, recorded with the London Symphony Orchestra at Abbey Road Studios in London. They followed with an orchestral tour accompanied by top-caliber symphony orchestras.
