George Thorogood and the Destroyers ‘Good to Be Bad Tour’ Celebrates 45 Years of Rock January 30, 2019
Like Thorogood’s music, the fans who came to enjoy a night of ‘bad boy’ rock ‘n’ roll spanned decades. Thorogood is a master performer and the full house cheered his not-so-politically-correct banter and sang along with his best-known tunes. Now in their fourth decade of making music and non-stop touring, Thorogood & The Destroyers show no signs of slowing down. — The Denver Post
EL PASO, TX – George Thorogood and the Destroyers, one of the most legendary rock bands in music history, will perform at the Plaza Theatre on Saturday, April 6 at 8 p.m. The group is also donating proceeds from their “Good to Be Bad Tour – 45 Years of Rock” to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to help find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients.
