Thursday September 21, 2017 – Currently touring extensively through North America, George Thorogood & The Destroyers will bring their Rock Party Tour to Australia for two shows only this summer.
The Rock Party Tour will be at Melbourne’s Forum Theatre on January 22 and Sydney’s Enmore Theatre on January 24.
Thorogood has just released Party of One, the first solo album of his 40-year-plus career, marking a back-to-the-roots approach for the singer and guitarist.
Tickets for both shows go on sale at 10am Wednesday, September 27.
My Live Nation members can be among the first to secure tickets during the pre-sale commencing at midday Tuesday, September 26.

With more than 40 years of touring and recording, 15 million albums sold and 8,000 live shows, George and his longtime band – Jeff Simon (drums, percussion), Bill Blough (bass guitar), Jim Suhler (rhythm guitar) and Buddy Leach (saxophone) – are touring veterans.
The band’s catalogue of hits includes “Who Do You Love,” “I Drink Alone,” “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer,” “Move It On Over,” “Get A Haircut,” and 1982’s anthemic, “Bad To The Bone” – with 16 studio albums – including six Gold and two Platinum discs.
“We play for a different audience every night, and that keeps it fresh. There are people who’ve never seen us before, and we have to impress them. There are fans that keep coming back, and we want to surprise them,” Thorogood said. “This is my job,” he added. “I’ve always loved it, and I love it now more than ever.”
