Some of his well-known hits include: “School’s Out,” “No More Mister Nice Guy,” “Poison,” “Billion Dollar Babies” and “Welcome to My Nightmare.”

George Thorogood
Sunday, September 18, 7:30 pm

GT20152-001

In 1973, a barely-out-of-his-teens Wilmington guitarist piled his gear into his drummer’s Chevy van to play their first gig at the University of Delaware dorm. More than 4 decades, over 8,000 live shows, and some 15 million albums sold worldwide later, that same maverick guitar-singer is still making electrifying music, still thrilling audiences and still the most bad-to-the-bone performer in rock. George Thorogood & The Destroyers are Badder than ever!  

George and his longtime band—Jeff Simon (drums, percussion), Bill Blough (bass guitar), Jim Suhler (rhythm guitar) and Buddy Leach (saxophone) –the new Badder than Ever Tour is indestructible proof that staying true to yourself and the music can still mean something. And with a catalog of classics that includes “Who Do You Love,” “I Drink Alone,” “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer,” “Move It on Over,” “Bad to the Bone,” and more, being able to share it with audiences is what will always matter.

Band BOSTON 2015z group Shot Photo credit Kamal Asar

Tom Scholz’s band BOSTON became an iconic classic rock fixture when they joined the music scene with their self-titled album in 1976. With over 17 million copies sold, BOSTON generated hits such as “More Than a Feeling,” “Peace of Mind,” and “Smokin’,” rock staples that are still in heavy rotation today. Their second album, Don’t Look Back, was another chart-topper that confirmed their place in rock history, followed by Third Stage, which hit #1 on the charts, with the top single of 1986, “Amanda.” With over 31 million albums sold to date, BOSTON has stood the test of time, as evidenced by live audiences that span generations.
