George Thorogood Tour Dates Announced

George Thorogood will hit the road April 6 with his longtime bandmates, the Destroyers, for a trek of dates that run well into August. More dates will be added.

Currently, George is in California working on an acoustic record, the first of his career. His latest CD, The Hard Stuff, was released last year, and the Gold-certified greatest-hits compilation, George Thorogood: 30 Years of Rock, was named the #1 top Blues Album of both 2005 and 2006 by Billboard magazine, which also crowned the band the #1 Top Blues Artist of 2005. Late last year, George was seen in the first series of actor Morgan Freeman’s Clarksdale Jook Joint Jam, a DVD collection celebrating the blues where he performed alongside Chicago blues great Eddie Shaw.

And how does George stay committed to touring and releasing new music? “30 years ago we had two songs, one guitar and we drove ourselves. Now we have songs that people identify us with, and new music coming out,” he says. “So this is where I have always wanted to be.”
