George Thorogood and the Destroyers are bringing their “Bad All Over The World – 50 Years of Rock” Tour to the Great New York State Fair. They’ll rock the Suburban Park Stage at 8:00 p.m. Saturday, August 26.
Recognized for massive hits including “I Drink Alone,” “Gear Jammer,” and their biggest anthem, “Bad to the Bone,” the rockers are also known for reinventing blues, country and R&B songs popularized by earlier icons including Bo Diddley, John Lee Hooker and Hank Williams. This has resulted in a transcending stage presence, allowing the band to connect with fans of a vast age range.
After more than 8,000 performances and 15 million albums sold, George Thorogood admits he still gets a rush when he sees audiences for the first time. When asked recently to describe his favorite career moment, Thorogood said, “My highlight is when I step on that bandstand. The promoters invited us, the audience came to hear us, and we’re ready to rock. When the rush of that ends, I’ll stop. Until then, every night I play for people can be the biggest night of my life.”
All concerts in the Chevrolet Music Series are free with admission to the Fair.
