George Thorogood and the Destroyers announce their “Good To Be Bad: 45 Years of Rock Tour,” starting April 4 in Scottsdale, AZ through August 9 in Costa Mesa, CA, stopping in Colorado Springs at Pikes Peak Center on April 30.
In 2018, the band released a top-selling limited edition seventh single for Record Store Day; saw the vinyl re-issues of their Bad To The Bone, Born To Be Bad and Greatest Hits: 30 Years Of Rock albums; and performed more than 70 dates throughout North America on their Rock Party Tour. Thorogood was presented the 2018 B.B. King Award from The Montreal International Jazz Festival, and his Party Of One album continued to be his fastest-selling disc in more than 20 years.
It’s on tour that George & band flip the switch nightly, delivering what The Toledo Blade calls a “gut-bustin’, guitar-wailin’, face-meltin’, take-no-prisoners, good old-fashioned lunch bucket rock-and-roll show”. The Sacramento Bee says, “The Destroyers remain as they have been for years – Jeff Simon on percussion, Bill Blough on bass, Jim Suhler on guitar, and Buddy Leach on saxophone. They are without doubt one of the best touring bands in blues-rock history.” Or, as Rolling Stone once raved, “George Thorogood & The Destroyers play rock & roll hot enough to melt the polar icecaps and flood the world’s major population centers.”
