George Thorogood & The Destroyers

Oct 7 • 7:30pm
WVU Creative Arts Center

Since 1975, they have sold more than 15 million albums worldwide, played more than 8,000 live shows and built an uncompromising catalog of hits that has certified George Thorogood and The Destroyers as one of rock’s most relentless entertainers. Now the bad-to-the-bone icon is bringing his “Good to Be Bad Tour: 45 Years of Rock” to Morgantown for one night only. Thorogood’s fiery guitar skills, explosive style and blistering take on blues rarities – his riffs and licks are straight from ’50s Chicago blues and rock ‘n’ roll – have forever ingrained him in pop culture history.  His signature hits – “Get a Haircut,” “I Drink Alone,” “Move It on Over,” “Who Do You Love,” “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer” and the definitive anthem “Bad to the Bone” roll off the tongues of fans effortlessly. Thorogood received the 2018 B.B. King Award from the Montreal International Jazz Festival in recognition of the mark his talent has left on the blues scene. A portion of the proceeds from every date on this tour will benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
