Legendary rock band George Thorogood And The Destroyers, has stormed the rock & roll charts for more than 40 years, and now the group is putting their talents to work by helping The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients. Thorogood and the Destroyers will be donating $1 from each ticket sale of their “Rock Party Tour” to LLS, when the tour kicks off their 21-city tour on May 18. The tour will continue through September 16 at Oregon's largest casino, Spirit Mountain Casino, in Grand Ronde, OR.
With more than four decades years of touring and recording, 15 million albums sold, and 8,000 live shows, George and his longtime band – Jeff Simon (drums, percussion), Bill Blough (bass guitar), Jim Suhler (rhythm guitar) and Buddy Leach (saxophone) – remain among the most relevant classic rock acts on tour today. The band has amassed a catalog of hits that includes “Who Do You Love”, “I Drink Alone”, “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer”, “Move It On Over”, “Get A Haircut” and the anthemic, “Bad To The Bone.” The band has released 16 studio albums – including six Gold and two Platinum discs on Rounder, EMI and Capitol – but it’s their powerhouse live performances that have made George Thorogood And The Destroyers legendary.
