George Thorogood and The Destroyers

Jun 13 , 2017 · KNIGHT THEATER at Levine Center for the Arts

Prices begin at $20.00

Presented by: MaxxMusic, Visulite Theatre & Blumenthal Performing Arts

George Thorogood and the Destroyers will begin the New Year doing what they do best – live touring – across the U.S. with their “Rock Party Tour,” starting February 28 in Tucson, Arizona. 

The group is also putting their talents to work by helping The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to help find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients, as they will be donating $1 from each ticket sale of their “Rock Party Tour” to LLS.

The “Rock Party Tour” promises to raise the bar, rock the house and tear off the roof like never before. Says George, “We play for a different audience every night, and that keeps it fresh.  There are people who’ve never seen us before, and we have to impress them. There are fans that keep coming back, and we want to surprise them.  This is my job,” he adds. “I’ve always loved it, and I love it now more than ever.”

From coast to coast, the critics agree:  “I’m happy to say, after all these years, that George is still ‘Bad To The Bone’ and he’s never let go of the true spirit of rock ’n roll!"" says the L.A. Daily News;  “Thorogood is a guitar-blazing revivalist whose enthusiasm and showmanship make the music fresh,” says the Baltimore Sun;  “He’s got charisma and personality to burn, a fact that becomes evident the moment he walks on stage,” says the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

With more than 40 years of touring and recording, 15 million albums sold, and 8,000 live shows, George and his longtime band – Jeff Simon (drums, percussion), Bill Blough (bass guitar), Jim Suhler (rhythm guitar) and Buddy Leach (saxophone) – remain among the most relentless and relevant classic rock acts on tour today.  The band has amassed a catalog of hits that includes “Who Do You Love,” “I Drink Alone,” “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer,” “Move It On Over,” “Get A Haircut,” and the anthemic, “Bad To The Bone.”  The band has released 16 studio albums – including six Gold and two Platinum discs on Rounder, EMI and Capitol – but it’s their powerhouse live performances that have made GT&D legendary.

George is also working on a new solo album, which will be released on Rounder Records later this year.  Details to be announced.
