George Thorogood And The Destroyers - 30th Anniversary Tour - Live In Europe - On DVD & CD
(New York, NY) - Eagle Rock Entertainment is pleased to celebrate 30 years of high octane, hard rocking blues with the release of George Thorogood And The Destroyers- 30th Anniversary Tour; Live In Europe on DVD October 19, 2004. The performance will also be available separately in the CD format on the same date.
Recorded during the British leg of their European Tour in 2003, 30th Anniversary Tour; Live In Europe shows blues-rock guitarist Thorogood showcasing tracks from his recent ‘Ride ‘Till I Die’ (Eagle Records 2003) album together with favorites such as ‘One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer,’ ‘I Drink Alone,’ ‘Bad To The Bone,’ ‘Who Do You Love’ and many more. Concert footage is interspersed with behind the scenes footage and interviews and bonus features include the promo film American Made as well as acoustic versions of ‘Ride ‘Till I Die’ and ‘Merry Christmas Baby.’
Drawing inspiration from the likes of Elmore James, Hound Dog Taylor and Chuck Berry, George Thorogood never earned much respect from blues purists, but his popularity couldn’t be denied in the early 80’s. Thorogood’s simple and direct approach to the blues allowed him to open for his idols like Howlin’ Wolf and Muddy Waters early in his career. Taking riffs straight from 50’s Chicago blues and adding volume and intensity, George’s approach eventually led to larger audiences and repeated Gold records.
George Thorogood And The Destroyers still continue to top themselves as this year marked the first #1 Billboard chart position of their career atop the Blues Chart with Greatest Hits: 30 Years Of Rock (Capitol). They also continue to trample audiences with their powerful stage show. They have been on tour all summer and after a brief break, will be back out on the road later in the year.
George Thorogood And The Destroyers- 30th Anniversary Tour; Live In Europe is available on DVD and separate companion CD through Eagle Rock Entertainment on October 19, 2004.
