George Thorogood Announces 45th-Anniversary Tour Dates
George Thorogood has announced dates for his Good to Be Bad: 45 Years of Rock tour.
The veteran blues rockers will hit the road with his band the Destroyers for performances across the U.S. that stretch from summer into fall. You can see the full touring schedule below.
Known for songs like “Bad to the Bone,” “Get a Haircut” and “Born to Be Bad,” Thorogood and the Destroyers have sold more than 15 million records in their career. The group has also earned their reputation as a tireless live act, regularly delivering high-energy performances all over the globe.
This year marks the fifth consecutive one that the band has teamed with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. In addition to raising funds by selling a specially designed shirt at all of their concerts, $1 from each ticket sold for the upcoming tour will be donated to LLS.
Even at 69 years, Thorogood is showing no signs of slowing down. In addition to the new tour dates, he recently announced the release of a limited-edition “White Fang” ES-125 Epiphone guitar. The instrument, outfitted with a bone-white finish and snake-skin handle, is a replica of Thorogood’s own customized guitar.
Fans can also look forward to seeing Thorogood on television this weekend during his appearance on Rock & Roll Trip With Sammy Hagar. The show, which features Hagar performing alongside some of rock’s biggest stars, airs Sunday night on AXS. You can see a clip from the episode below.
