George Thorogood at Artpark
In the second last Tuesday in the Park of the summer, George Thorogood & the Destroyers will be playing a free show tonight in Lewiston.
The Destroyers first busted onto the scene in the 70’s by mostly playing covers of popular blues songs. It wasn’t until the 1980’s when they really came into their own. Original songs such as “Bad to the Bone,” “I Drink Alone,” and “You Talk Too Much” were huge hits for the band. Even with the success of their original songs, most of the songs they released remained covers. They popularized songs such as Bo Diddley’s “Who Do You Love?” and Hank Williams’ “Move it on Over.”
We looked over their setlists from other concerts on the tour, and we think you’re going to like it. You’ll be able to hear the songs we just mentioned as well as fan favorites like “Madison Blues” and “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer.”
