GEORGE THOROGOOD AND THE DESTROYERS ANNOUNCE 2018 “ROCK PARTY TOUR” IN THE U.S. AND CANADA
George Thorogood and the Destroyers announce the continuation of their “Rock Party Tour” into 2018 in the U.S. and Canada, starting April 13 in Lincoln, Rhode Island, through May 12 in Coquitlam, British Columbia, with additional dates forthcoming. The group is also donating proceeds from their “Rock Party Tour” to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to help find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients. Opening for George at the South Okanagan Events Centre in Penticton is Damon Flower.
Earlier this year, George Thorogood’s first-ever solo album, PARTY OF ONE, landed in the Top 10 on Soundscan’s “Top Current Blues Albums” chart, marking George’s fastest-selling album in nearly 20 years. The album features 14 cuts of traditional blues, classics and modern blues songs, from John Lee Hooker’s “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer” to Hank Williams’ “Pictures From Life’s Other Side.”
Over the course of the last four decades, George Thorogood, with his longtime legendary band, The Destroyers — Jeff Simon (drums, percussion), Bill Blough (bass guitar), Jim Suhler (rhythm guitar) and Buddy Leach (saxophone) — has sold more than 15 million albums, released 16 studio albums – including six gold and two platinum discs — and performed more than 8,000 live shows. George Thorogood and the Destroyers’ catalog of hits include: “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.”
