George Thorogood & The Destroyers have announced two fan-centric celebrations marking their 50th anniversary.
On December 1, 1973, George Thorogood & The Destroyers played their first show at The University of Delaware’s Lane Hall. Fifty years later, to commemorate this milestone, the Recording Academy‘s Grammy Museum will present “An Evening With George Thorogood & The Destroyers” on November 30 at The Clive Davis Theater in Los Angeles.
The sold-out evening will feature an intimate conversation moderated by Matt Pinfield, followed by the band’s live performance.
On December 1, Southern California’s renowned rock station KLOS-FM will host George and the band for a private show and an exclusive interview with KLOS DJs Matt Pinfield and Marci Wiser, with 200 lucky fans.

Reflecting on this half-century journey, Thorogood shares, “I’ll admit to a warm feeling of satisfaction, maybe a bit of pride, and definitely a whole lot of gratitude. But, I must admit, fifty years doesn’t feel like a long time when you love what you do. Every show we play can still feel like the biggest night of our lives.”
With more than 8,000 live performances, more than 15 million albums sold, and iconic hits such as “Get A Haircut,” “I Drink Alone,” “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer,” “Move It On Over,” “Who Do You Love” and the definitive anthem “Bad To The Bone,” Thorogood and his long-time band – Jeff Simon (drums), Bill Blough (bass), Jim Suhler (guitar), and Buddy Leach (saxophone) – remain one of the most remarkable live acts in the world.
