The address of the venue is 36 North Park Place, Newark, OH 43055-5517. Click here to view the venue website.
This theater originaly opened as a silent movie theater in December 1928. However it closed in a bad state of repair in 1978 and remained closed until in 1992 the new owners started an 8 year, $8.5m renovation and restoration project. The theater is now an amazing mixture of decoration that reflects its great history but also has an opulent feel to it.

Kasim Sulton playing with Blue Öyster Cult in England on Sunday
Sunday 9th February 2014
Tonight Kasim Sulton plays another gig as part of Blue Öyster Cult at the Giants of Rock Festival in England
Kasim Sulton plays a Blue Öyster Cult gig tonight in England
01.15 - Tonight Kasim Sulton plays a gig as part of Blue Öyster Cult in Minehead, Somerset, England. This will be Kasim's first gig in England since October 2011.
The gig tonight is at the Monsters Of Rock Festival which is a series of weekends held at a Butlin's Holiday Camp. Blue Öyster Cult are the headliners tonight at this three day festival which started on Friday. Also on the bill were Wishbone Ash, Sweet, Uriah Heep and Hawkwind.
Butlin's Holiday Camps are a very English tradition which had their heyday in the 1950s and 1960s before families could afford to fly abroad for their vacations. The camps were located at seaside towns all over the country and accommodation was mainly caravans with restaurants and nightlife all on site so there was no reason to leave the camp. In earlier days fun competitions such as Knobbly Knees, Glamourous Grandmas and singing competitions were very popular. Now most people stay in the camps in chalets and Butlins supplement their income in winter months with music 'festivals.'
As fans have to pay for accommodation and the music is included in the price, it is not listed online the start time of Blue Öyster Cult's set.
Tickets for the weekend vary in price from £266 to about £500 ($35 to $650). The weekend is virtually sold out.
Minehead is located in the west of England so the band will probably have flown from Athens to Heathrow and then drive four or five hours from there.

Tonight Kasim Sulton plays another gig as part of Blue Öyster Cult in Greece
Kasim Sulton plays a Blue Öyster Cult gig tonight in Thessaloniki, Greece
01.15 - Tonight Kasim Sulton plays a gig as part of Blue Öyster Cult in Thessaloniki, Greece which is 5 hours north of Athens. This is another city where Kasim played a gig several years ago as part of Joan Jett and The Blackhearts.
The gig tonight is at a venue called Block 33 and the address is Block 33 Creative Space, October 26, Thessaloniki, 54627, Greece.
Originally this gig was listed for The Principal Club in the same city.
Unfortunately again I have been unable to find out much about the actual gig itself except that tickets vary in price from €25 to €28 (about $24 to $27).

Tonight Kasim Sulton plays a gig as part of Blue Öyster Cult in Greece
Kasim Sulton plays a Blue Öyster Cult gig tonight in Athens, Greece
01.15 - Tonight Kasim Sulton plays a gig as part of Blue Öyster Cult in Athens, Greece. This will be Kasim's first gig in Greece since he played in the country as part of Joan Jett and The Blackhearts.
There appear to be no direct flights from US to Greece so Kasim will probably have changed planes in either London or Paris. The total travel time, including a two hour stopover, will have been about 13 hours. Greece is 7 hours ahead of New York City.
The gig tonight is at a venue called Gagarin 205. It gets its name from Yuri Gagarin (the first man in space) and from being located at number 205.
According to the venue website it is 'the most modern concert venue of Greece, a venue built to the specifications of the 21st century. Capacity of 1,200 standing or 600 seated, Gagarin 205 is not even a 'shop', but a multi-purpose venue that hosts the most demanding claims concerts, theater performances, film screenings, special events and happenings.' The venue opened on 27th September 2002.
The venue is located at Liossion 203-205, 104 45 Athens.
Unfortunately I have been unable to find out much about the actual gig itself other than the opening act is The Big Nose Attack and tickets vary in price from €25 (for the first 200 sold) to €32 (about $24 to $31).
With apologies to the band, but this is how they appear on the venue website!
