15 million records sold, far more than 8,000 live shows under his belt, and with the number "Bad To The Bone" a trademark song in his repertoire that the whole world knows. Since the mid-seventies, the thoroughbred musician George Thorogood and his backing band The Destroyers have been making blues-rock hearts beat faster. In July 2022, the Ami rock icons will perform at the Z7 Summer Nights in Pratteln as part of the "Good To Be Bad: 45 Years of Rock" tour.
He is a true legend: George Thorogood. In 2022, he celebrates his 72nd birthday. But the musician is like a good wine. The older, the better. His sound: authentic, earthy, genuine and unmistakable at all times. His style: Rhythm & Blues, loud and straightforward. Not to deny the ingredients: Rock'n'Roll à la Chuck Berry, T-Bone Walker's Chicago Blues, the slide technique of Elmore James or his younger successor Johnny Winter, plus a pinch of Bo Diddley shuffle, some Canned Heat boogie, the whole thing served in the hard guitar sound grip of the 80s. About his last album, the cover disc "Party Of One" (2017), the trade press judged very positively. Stereoplay: "Thorogood never sounded so present before." Audio: "No one belts out the blues as boldly as this eternally defiant boy." The blues rocker himself says, "This album is who I was - who I am - who I'll always be." Thorogood has been on the road as a street musician and has also played the big venues. The man has known all the ups and downs of the music business. By his side since 1973: backing band The Destroyers. Together they are an unbeatable team. With the number "Bad To The Bone" they created 40 years ago a title that went around the world. It's clear that the signature song can't be missing from the live repertoire. Just as little as the classics "Get A Haircut", "I Drink Alone", "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer" or "Who Do YouLove". Good Time Rocking Blues that nobody plays better than George Thorogood & The Destroyers.
