Since 1975, George Thorogood and his Destroyers have sold over 15 million albums, released 16 studio albums, built a classic catalogue of hits – including six gold and two platinum records – and played more than 8,000 ferocious live shows. They broke records with their 50 Dates/50 States tour, delivered landmark performances at Live Aid and on SNL, and became mainstays of radio, MTV and stages worldwide for more than two generations. Through it all, they’ve remained one of the most consistent – and consistently passionate – practitioners of blues-based rock in pop culture history.
In 2017, 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.”
George Thorogood and the Destroyers’ catalogue 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.’
George Thorogood’s long-time legendary band, The Destroyers, comprise Jeff Simon (drums, percussion), Bill Blough (bass guitar), Jim Suhler (rhythm guitar) and Buddy Leach (saxophone).
The band mates have been always delivered explosive live shows, full of killer no filler hits, and show absolutely no signs of slowing down. Thorogood can point to exactly what continues to make it all matter, stating, “My highlight is every night when I walk on that stage and play our hits for those happy people. At the end of the show, the audience is smiling, I don’t see any police and everyone got their money’s worth.”
Australia, it’s still so good to be bad to the bone. Don’t miss a highlight of this coming summer when George Thorogood and The Destroyers appear live in concert in Melbourne and Sydney.
