On the evening of December 1st, 1973 at The University of Delaware’s Lane Hall, a guitarist, a drummer, and their rhythm guitarist set up on the small bandstand. Though the three-piece band had barely rehearsed, guitarist George Thorogood and drummer Jeff Simon had been bashing out covers of songs they loved – including ‘No Particular Place To Go’, ‘Madison Blues’ and ‘One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer’ – in suburban Wilmington basements since they were teens. The Lane Hall audience was wary at first. “Then it was like somebody flipped a switch,” Simon recalls. “Everybody hit the dance floor all at once.”

“We had the place rockin’,” Thorogood says. “From that very first show, Jeff and I knew we were onto something.” Five decades, 15 million albums and more than 8,000 performances later, few bands can still rock the house like George Thorogood & Destroyers. And for Thorogood, Simon, and long-time Destroyers Bill Blough, Jim Suhler and Buddy Leach, their Bad All Over The World – 50 Years of Rock Tour will be a celebration like no other.

But when asked to pick a career highlight, maybe one night over the past half century that changed everything for George Thorogood & The Destroyers, he shakes his head, flashes a huge grin and heads off to soundcheck. “My highlight is when I step on that bandstand,” Thorogood says. “The promoters invited us, the fans came to hear us, and we’re ready to rock. Every night I play for people can be the biggest night of my life.”

Opening Artist: Hamish Anderson

Hamish Anderson

Australia’s Roots Rock artist Hamish Anderson has been generating global attention since 2013. In 2016 Hamish independently released his critically acclaimed debut album, Trouble, produced and mixed by Grammy-winner Jim Scott. “No Good,” “Breaking Down,” and “What You Do To Me” singles all received radio support – the latter reaching the #39 at Americana in 2019.

Also in 2019, The AGE/Sydney Morning Herald profiled him in advance of his Australian shows supporting Gary Clark Jr. Then, after touring the world, Hamish returned to Australia to open for George Thorogood & The Destroyers on his sold out tour. In 2020 Hamish’s sophomore album Out of My Head was awarded the Independent Music Award for Best Album – Blues category. Later that year, he was featured in Guitar Player Magazine (Aug 2020) which resulted in a cover mention as well.

Throughout 2021 and 2022, Hamish released three singles “Morning Light” and “Everything Starts Again” and “Tea & Sympathy” all from his forthcoming album. Notably, “Everything Starts Again” spent several months in Top 40 AAA Radio in the US – debuting at #26.

In 2022, he appeared at Blues on BroadBeach (AUS) for the second time and did eleven dates in support of George Thorogood & The Destroyers upon their return to Australia. Now in 2023, Hamish is thrilled to announce his return to the USA on tour with George Thorogood marking his FIRST shows in America since 2019.
