George Thorogood Performing In SW Louisiana This November
Singer, songwriter, and inventor of "high-energy boogie-blues", George Thorogood, is coming to SWLA to perform later this year in November.
On the evening of December 1, 1973 at The University of Delaware’s Lane Hall, a
guitarist, a drummer, and their rhythm guitarist set up on the small bandstand. Though
the three-piece band had barely rehearsed, guitarist George Thorogood and drummer
Jeff Simon had been bashing out covers of songs they loved, including ‘No Particular
Place To Go’, ‘Madison Blues’ and ‘One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer’, in suburban
Wilmington basements since they were teens. The Lane Hall audience was wary at first.
“Then it was like somebody flipped a switch,” Simon recalls. “Everybody hit the dance
floor all at once.”
“We had the place rockin’,” Thorogood says. “From that very first show, Jeff and I knew
we were onto something.” Five decades, 15 million albums and more than 8,000
performances later, few bands can still rock the house like George Thorogood & Destroyers. And for Thorogood, Simon, and long-time Destroyers Bill Blough, Jim
Suhler and Buddy Leach, their "Bad All Over The World – 50 Years of Rock Tour" will
be a celebration like no other here in SWLA.
