George Thorogood and The Destroyers are playing Peabody Auditorium December 9, 2021 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets will be available for purchase at Ticketmaster or at the Peabody Box Office. More information is available on the Peabody Auditorium website.
Since 1975, George Thorogood and The Destroyers have sold over 15 million albums, played more than 8,000 ferocious live shows, and built a catalog of classic hits that includes “Get A Haircut”, “I Drink Alone”, “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer”, “Move It On Over” and the definitive badass anthem “Bad To The Bone”. Now “one of the most iconic bands in rock & roll history” (Rapid City Journal) celebrates it all with their Good To Be Bad Tour: 45 Years Of Rock.
For Thorogood and his longtime band – Jeff Simon (drums, percussion), Bill Blough (bass guitar), Jim Suhler (rhythm guitar) and Buddy Leach (saxophone) – the power to rock audiences has been both battle cry and creed from the beginning. It’s on tour that George and band flip the switch nightly, delivering what The Toledo Blade calls a “gut-bustin’, guitar-wailin’, face-meltin’, take-no-prisoners, good old-fashioned lunch bucket rock-and-roll show”. The Sacramento Bee says, “The Destroyers remain as they have been for years – Jeff Simon on percussion, Bill Blough on bass, Jim Suhler on guitar, and Buddy Leach on saxophone. They are without doubt one of the best touring bands in blues-rock history.” Or as Rolling Stone once raved, “George Thorogood & The Destroyers play rock & roll hot enough to melt the polar icecaps and flood the world’s major population centers.”
