GEORGE THOROGOOD Confirms North American Spring Tour Dates
Posted by Michael Mueller on February 2, 2009 at 1:15 PM
George Thorogood and the Destroyers have announced they'll hit the road later this month for a 24-date trek that begins February 26 in Milwaukee, WI, and includes a stop in the guitarist's home state of Delaware March 23 at the Grand Opera House in Wilmington. After this North American run, the group heads to Europe for 14 shows in seven countries, to be followed by a summer leg of U.S. dates.
"It's always been about the live show for me," says Thorogood. "From day one, I set out to be a live performer more than anything. All of my favorite artists--Little Richard, J. Geils, Mitch Ryder, Chuck Berry--they were all great live. And the Destroyers, we strive for that."
Described as "the world's greatest bar band," the group has had tremendous success with Thorogood's original compositions like "You Talk Too Much," "I Drink Alone," and, of course, "Bad to the Bone." He's also had hits with covers of iconic blues-rock songs like "Who Do You Love" (Bo Diddley), "Move It On Over" (Hank Williams), and "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer" (John Lee Hooker).
