Rock and blues legends George Thorogood and The Destroyers will bring their “Rock Party Tour” to The Pavilion at Seminole Casino Coconut Creek on Oct. 19 at 8 p.m. The Pavilion at Seminole Casino Coconut Creek is located at 5550 NW 40th Street, Coconut Creek, Fla.
Tickets (priced at $40/$50/$60) are on sale now via Ticketmaster locations, online at Ticketmaster.com, or by calling 800-653-8000. The Pavilion box office will also open at 1 p.m. on the day of the show for on-site ticket purchases and will call pickup.
The group is donating proceeds from different concerts on their “Rock Party Tour” to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to help find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients. One dollar from every ticket sold for the Seminole Casino Coconut Creek show will go to the charity.
Thorogood’s relationship with the Leukemia Lymphoma Society began years ago after a close family member was diagnosed with leukemia.
“In the wake of such devastating news I felt compelled to lend a hand hand,” said Thorogood. “I’m honored to join the LLS family in the fight to cure blood cancers. Someday is today.”
Performing a mix of blues rock and boogie rock, Thorogood and his band became a staple of 1980’s rock radio after producing such hits as “Bad to the Bone” and “I Drink Alone.” The former was the band’s first top 40 single.
Other notable Thorogood hits include “Move It on Over,” “Who Do You Love,” and “House Rent Boogie/One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer.”
Thorogood’s first-ever solo (and most current) album, Party of One, landed in the Top 10 on Soundscan’s “Top Current Blues Albums” chart when it was released in 2017, marking his fastest-selling album in nearly 20 years. The album features 14 cuts of traditional blues, classics and modern blues songs, from John Lee Hooker’s “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer” to Hank Williams’ “Pictures From Life’s Other Side.”
Over the course of the last four decades, Thorogood, with his longtime legendary band — Jeff Simon (drums, percussion), Bill Blough (bass guitar), Jim Suhler (rhythm guitar) and Buddy Leach (saxophone) — has sold more than 15 million albums and released 16 studio albums including six gold and two platinum discs.
They have performed more than 8,000 live shows.
Thorogood, from Wilmington, Del., in 2012 was named one of the “50 Most Influential Delawareans of the Past 50 Years.”
