George Thorogood & The Destroyers have announced a North American tour in 2023 to mark the 50th anniversary of the blues rock band’s formation.
Since their first-ever performance at Lane Hall at The University of Delaware in December 1973, George Thorogood and Jeff Simon – with long-time Destroyers Bill Blough, Jim Suhler and Buddy Leach have played more than 8,000 live shows and sold 15 million albums over five decades.
“From that very first show, we’ve stayed true to ourselves and the music we love,” says Thorogood. “We’ve decided to celebrate our first half-century by throwing the biggest and baddest rock party ever.”
The “Bad All Over The World – 50 Years of Rock Tour” kicks off on the Rock Legends Cruise X on 2013 February 13.
The tour officially opens with a couple of back-to-back shows at Chinook Winds Casino Resort in Lincoln City, Oregon, on March 17 and 18.
More details about the tour and additional cities will be announced later.
