Our George Thorogood & The Destroyers show that was due to take place on 22 Jul 2020 / 30 Jul 2021 has now been rescheduled for 24 Jul 2022. All tickets remain valid for the new date, please get in touch with your point of purchase if you have any questions.

George Thorogood & The Destroyers head to York Barbican as part of their acclaimed Good To Be Bad: 45 Years Of Rock tour - their first UK performances in over seven years.

“To hear George Thorogood flail his slide up and down his guitar,” wrote Greil Marcus in Rolling Stone, you might have thought he was Ben Franklin – that he’d discovered not the blues, but electricity.” 

Since 1975, George Thorogood & The Destroyers have sold over 15 million albums, played more than 8,000 ferocious live shows, and built a catalog of classic hits that includes ‘Who Do You Love’, ‘I Drink Alone’, ‘One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer’, ‘Move It On Over’ and Thorogood’s definitive badass anthem, ‘Bad To The Bone.

“The Destroyers remain as they have been for years – Jeff Simon on percussion, Bill Blough on bass, Jim Suhler on guitar, and Buddy Leach on saxophone,” The Sacramento Bee says. “They are without a doubt one of the best touring bands in blues-rock history.”

“Ever since our first shows there in 1978, the UK has been one of our favourite places to play,” says Thorogood. “We’re talkin’ great venues, great energy, and truly great audiences, and we’re looking forward to coming back for it all. Expect our best, because that’s what you’re gonna get.”
