Two giants of rock, Black Sabbath and Blue Oyster Cult, share the same stage in the feature length concert film BLACK AND BLUE. Introduction by Richard Christy, writer and composer of “Majestic Loincloth.” A special 35mm presentation.

In 1980, Black Sabbath and Blue Oyster Cult co-headlined a nationwide tour called Black and Blue. Recorded at the Nassau Coliseum in Long Island and never released on DVD, Black and Blue cuts back-and-forth between both bands’ sets, and features Ronnie James Dio blazing through tracks from the then just released Heaven and Hell, while Blue Oyster Cult hams it up with a gigantic fiberglass Godzilla.

Never before released on DVD, we’ll be screening Black and Blue from our own 35mm print. So break out your torches and sharpen your horns, because the Devil is coming to Nitehawk, and He’s brought friends.
