Rock legends George Thorogood & The Destroyers are returning to Las Vegas for a special performance at the Pearl Concert Theater inside Palms Casino Resort on Saturday, March 11, 2017 at 8 p.m.
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 & The Destroyers are throwing a Rock Party for 2017 and you’re invited.
George Thorogood & The Destroyers’ self-titled and now-classic debut on Rounder would soon be certified Gold. Over the course of 16 studio albums – including six Gold and two Platinum discs on Rounder, EMI and Capitol – the band would amass an unmatched catalog of hits that includes “Who Do You Love,” “I Drink Alone,” “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer,” “Move It On Over,” “Get A Haircut” and the ultimate badass anthem, “Bad To The Bone.” But it was their powerhouse live performances that made GT&D legendary: from unforgettable appearances on SNL and Live Aid, to the opening slot on the Rolling Stones’ historic ’81 tour, to their own record-breaking 50/50 tour, or any of their current 100+ shows per year, George and his long-time band – Jeff Simon (drums, percussion), Bill Blough (bass guitar), Jim Suhler (rhythm guitar) and Buddy Leach (saxophone) – remain among the most relentless and relevant classic rock acts on tour today.
Even as Thorogood prepares for the release of his first solo album (to be released on Rounder), the new tour promises to raise the bar, rock the house and tear off the roof like never before. From a birthday party in Wilmington to concert stages around the world, it’s been one of the most credible and uncompromising rides in American music. Today, one badder-than-ever guitar-slinger and his band are back to play like they still have something to prove. For George Thorogood And The Destroyers – as well as for millions of fans old and new – the Rock Party starts now.
