George Thorogood And The Destroyers has been a nonstop touring rock and roll machine since the ‘70s, celebrating 40 years of performing together in 2014. In that time the band’s signature snarling, buzz saw bluesy rock ‘n’ roll blend generated classic rock staples like “Bad to the Bone,” “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer,” “I Drink Alone,” “Who Do You Love,” “Move it On Over,” and many more.
“George Thorogood is bringing some of the most well-known hits in the world to the Chip this summer,” said Rod Woodruff, Sturgis Buffalo Chip President. “And if you’re in the crowd you’ll get to experience the power of these classic tunes in the best way possible, through the band’s explosive live performance. I expect everyone in the audience will be singing along to every word.”
