Since 1975, George Thorogood and The Destroyers have sold over 15 million albums, played more than 8,000 ferocious live shows and built a catalog of classic hits that includes Get A Haircut, I Drink Alone, One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer, Move It On Over and Bad To The Bone. Now “one of the most iconic bands in rock ‘n’ roll history” (Rapid City Journal) celebrates it all with their Good To Be Bad Tour: 45 Years Of Rock.
“If you’re content, you may as well be dead.” George laughs with his familiar rasp. “I think everyone has thoughts about retiring, but the phone keeps ringing. You want me and The Destroyers to come to your town, set up our gear, wear some badass clothes and play Who Do You Love? End of conversation. Let’s rock!”
And as in past years, a portion of proceeds from every date on the Good To Be Bad Tour will benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. “Now we're talking about something that's really important,” George says. “When I was a kid I remember Robert F. Kennedy saying, ‘Some people see things as they are and ask why. I dream things that never were and ask why not?’ That still gives me the chills today. Don’t tell me to slow down or turn down, but if The Destroyers and I can help make a difference in any way, shape or form, we're there.”
