BOC Cancel Remaining 2008 Shows

Blue Oyster Cult scrubbed its remaining tour schedule, citing a shoulder injury suffered by Donald “Buck Dharma” Roeser.

The band’s agent told Pollstar that Roeser slipped on a flight of stairs in his Florida home while carrying some packages.
While the resulting shoulder injury is serious enough to force the band to cancel the remaining shows for this year, Roeser is expected to make a full recovery.

Whether the injury might affect 2009 tour plans is unknown, but an announcement is expected in the near future.
