DEADWOOD, S.D. (06/08/18) – With over 15 million albums sold over the course of four decades, George Thorogood and the Destroyers have become one of the most iconic bands in rock and roll history. On Friday, August 31st they will make a stop at the Deadwood Mountain Grand Event Center for a one-night-only performance as part of their “Rock Party Tour”. The group is also donating proceeds from their tour to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to help find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients.
Earlier this year, George Thorogood’s first-ever solo album, PARTY OF ONE, landed in the Top 10 on Soundscan’s “Top Current Blues Albums” chart, marking George’s fastest-selling album in nearly 20 years. The album features 14 cuts of traditional blues, classics and modern blues songs, from John Lee Hooker’s “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer” to Hank Williams’ “Pictures From Life’s Other Side.”
Over the course of the last four decades, George Thorogood, with his longtime legendary band, The Destroyers -- Jeff Simon (drums, percussion), Bill Blough (bass guitar), Jim Suhler (rhythm guitar) and Buddy Leach (saxophone) -- has sold more than 15 million albums, released 16 studio albums – including six gold and two platinum discs -- and performed more than 8,000 live shows.
