GEORGE THOROGOOD & THE DESTROYERS ANNOUNCE 50 TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR FOR 2023
‘Bad All Over The World – 50 Years Of Rock’
To Include First Canada Concerts In 3 Years, Major Summer Tour
On December 1st, 1973, a guitarist, a drummer, and their rhythm guitarist loaded their gear into the drummer’s Volkswagen bus and drove to Lane Hall at The University of Delaware. In a week that saw new albums by Wings, Black Sabbath, and Bachman-Turner Overdrive, the three-piece band proceeded to play covers that included ‘No Particular Place To Go’, ‘Madison Blues’ and ‘One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer.’ The drummer, Jeff Simon, recalls the crowd was wary at first, “then it was like someone flipped a switch.” By the second set, the dance floor was packed.
“After the gig,” the guitarist says with his now-familiar grin, “Jeff and I thought, ‘maybe we’re onto something.’” It was the first-ever performance by George Thorogood & The Destroyers.
Five decades, more than 8,000 live shows, and 15 million albums later, George Thorogood and Jeff Simon – with long-time Destroyers Bill Blough, Jim Suhler and Buddy Leach – now announce their Bad All Over The World – 50 Years of Rock Tour. “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.”

George Thorogood And The Destroyers @ The Fortitude Music Hall (Brisbane)
Written by Clea-marie Thorne
When you give up an opportunity to photograph a full moon eclipse, the show you're heading too has got to be a must-see event. Indeed it is. George Thorogood and the Destroyers are in BrisVegas baby!Like a woman possessed by the powers of the pending blood moon, tonight (8 November) I am on a mission to get to The Fortitude Music Hall to get my rock on. I know. A school night and all!
With the powers of Luna on my side, I am arriving heaps early with time to grab a tour tee and even have a drink and a chat with mates. I am ready, willing and raring to check out Hamish Anderson's opening set. It seems like I am not the only one.
The blues rocker, singer-songwriter graces the stage with his bass and drum players, yelps of a cowboy nature pierce the din of other punters loudly engaged in conversation.
