GEORGE THOROGOOD AND THE DESTROYERS announce their summer / fall "Good To Be Bad: 45 Years of Rock" 31-city tour, starting June 22 in Hinckley, Minnesota through October 19 in Battle Creek, Michigan, with additional dates forthcoming.
The group is in their fifth consecutive year of supporting the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) by donating $1 from each ticket sold on their "Good To Be Bad: 45 Years of Rock" tour to LLS. They will also continue donating 100% of the net proceeds from the sale of their LLS-branded Destroyers shirt to the organization.

Additionally, Epiphone recently announced the release of the Ltd. Ed. George Thorogood “White Fang” ES-125TDC Outfit guitar, featuring a vintage-inspired ES-125 hollowbody archtop in a bone white finish with removable “Cobra” sticker, new ProBuckerTM P-90 single-coil pickups, a hand-signed Certificate of Authenticity, Custom Hard Case with “snake-skin” handle, and WilkinsonTM Deluxe Tuners.
The ES-125 thin-line hollowbody was first introduced in 1956 as a student guitar, but in George Thorogood’s hands, his rare, late 50s two-pickup ES-125 was transformed into one of the most iconic instruments in American music.

In 2018, GEORGE THOROGOOD AND THE DESTROYERS released a top-selling limited edition 7" single for Record Store Day, saw the 180-gram vinyl re-issues of their Bad To The Bone, Born To Be Bad and Greatest Hits: 30 Years Of Rock albums, and performed over 70 dates throughout North America on their "Rock Party" tour. Thorogood was presented the 2018 B.B. King Award from The Montreal International Jazz Festival, and his Party Of One album continued to be his fastest-selling disc in over 20 years.

It's on tour that George & 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."
