George Thorogood & The Destroyers

When this Delware-based blues/rock group were mere pups in the music biz they cemented their status as legends with an epic 50/50 tour in 1982 where they played 50 shows in the 50 American states in the space of 50 days. And yes, that included gigs in Hawaii and Alaska, which they did on back-to-back nights sandwiched between shows in Colorado and Washington State.

Frontman George Thorogood is 66 now, so presumably he’s slowed down a bit from those days, but he and his band still have a well-deserved reputation for being road warriors. On Friday April 29, George Thorogood & the Destroyers are in town to play a show at Conexus Arts Centre. Curtain’s at 7:30 p.m., and you can get ticket info on the CAC website.

Here’s video from 2014 of the band playing one of their best-known hits “Who Do You Love?”

  1. Speaking of “moderately glaring errors”, it’s “Delaware”. You’re more than welcome.

  2. I saw George at the then Centre of the Arts in 1982(?) Great performer and anyone who goes this time will have a great time.

  3. I saw him at Woodstock. The original.

    Kidding, I wasn’t alive, but he was. 66?? Jesus.

    Rock on.
