Event Description
Grand Funk Railroad w/ Blue Oyster Cult LIVE!


The "American Band”, Grand Funk Railroad is coming to the Boone IA River Valley Festival for their 50th Anniversary Tour, ‘50 Years of Funk,’ with special guest Blue Öyster Cult LIVE Memorial Weekend 2019. 


You cannot talk about rock in the 1970s without talking about Grand Funk Railroad!” -Rolling Stone Magazine. Internationally acclaimed Grand Funk Railroad has toured the world, selling out in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Japan and South America. A 1971 performance at New York’s Shea Stadium sold out faster than the Beatles. Over their career, Grand Funk has had 19 charted singles, 8 Top 40 hits and two Number One singles (We’re An American Band and Locomotion). The group has now accumulated 13 gold and 10 platinum records with record sales in excess of 25 million copies sold worldwide.


For over four decades, Blue Öyster Cult has been thrilling fans of intelligent hard rock worldwide with powerful albums loaded with classic songs. Listed in VH1's countdown of the greatest hard rock bands of all time, the band is often cited as a major influence by acts such as Metallica. BÖC's haunting "(Don't Fear) The Reaper", the pummeling "Godzilla" and the hypnotically melodic, "Burnin' for You" are stone-cold classic songs that will waft through the cosmos long after the sun has burned out.


Boone River Valley Festival one of the Top 10 Best Outdoor Festivals in Iowa! Come enjoy a whole weekend of events for the whole family, dedicated to celebrating the outdoors in Boone's ‘river valley’. A full schedule of nightly live music and events for all ages is at www.BooneRiverValleyFestival.com or follow us on Facebook.


A portion of the proceeds will benefit Boone’s Camp Hantesa's program, Camp Brave- especially designed for kids impacted by crime.
