The day before George Thorogood is set to perform on the main stage at the Washington Town and Country Fair, the legendary guitarist/vocalist known the world over for his anthemic hit “Bad to the Bone,” will release his first-ever solo album.

“Party of One” will be released worldwide Aug. 4, both digitally and at retail stores, and Thorogood will take the stage at Fair Saturday night, Aug. 5, at 8:30 p.m.

But don’t expect him to play many of the songs from “Party of One” at the Fair. The new album is acoustic, and Thorogood wants the concert here to be a rocker.
