It’s that moment when the house lights go down and the audience erupts:  a drumbeat punches through the darkness, and the stage lights – almost blindingly bright at first – reveal a killer band ready to unleash a catalog of classic hits like none other. That familiar snarl of a slide guitar rips open the room, and you know you’re about to experience a bad-to-the-bone icon at his very best. George Thorogood And The Destroyers are throwing a Rock Party for 2017, and you’re invited.

“The thing is,” Thorogood says with a laugh, “it all started with a birthday party.”

For any kid growing up in the ‘60s, the first sightings of live rock & roll on TV were mind-bendingly seismic. “Ask Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, John Mellencamp or Chrissie Hynde, and they’ll tell you the same thing,” George says. “The Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show and The Rolling Stones on Shindig — we all saw that and said, ‘That’s it. That’s what I want to do.’” Almost immediately, teens across America, including the suburbs of Wilmington, Delaware, started to put together bands. “I didn’t know how to play guitar then, but the band up the street needed a singer,” he remembers. “And because I knew the words to a bunch of songs, I said I’d give it a try. The first show we ever played was a party for my twin sisters’ birthday. I was 15 years old and got paid $20. That was the day I became a professional rock performer.”
