Break out your air guitars — rock and roll legends George Thorogood & The Destroyers are coming to a concert hall near you. Beloved for '80s classics like "Bad to the Bone" and "Born to Be Bad," George and the boys continue to bring the boogie, treating fans around the country to a truly authentic rock and roll experience. As adept at playing the blues as they are at playing shred guitar, the band's sets on their 2014 tour span their discography, with an emphasis on their greatest hits and fan favorites.
Hailing from Delaware, George Thorogood abandoned dreams of a baseball career after being inspired to play music by a 1970 John P. Hammond concert. After teaming up with The Destroyers, the band made their self-titled album debut in 1977, finding success on the Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. After releasing several more albums, Thorogood got his first mainstream exposure as an opener for The Rolling Stones on their 1981 US tour. That break helped establish George and The Destroyers as a tireless touring band, paving the way for their 1981 50/50 Tour, during which they performed in all 50 American states in the space of 50 days. The band achieved their biggest breakthrough, however, in 1982 with iconic single "Bad to the Bone," the stuttering hook of which remains an emblem of American rock music.
