Credit: David DobsonGeorge Thorogood and his longtime band The Destroyers will keep the party going next year when they head out on a new North American leg of their Rock Party Tour. The trek gets underway on April 18 in Lincoln, Rhode Island, and currently is scheduled through a May 11-12 stand in the Canadian city of Coquitlam, British Columbia.

The first part of the tour will see Thorogood and the Destroyers visiting various venues in the Northeastern U.S. before heading north of the border for a run of shows across Canada. The trek also includes stops in two Michigan cities — Grand Rapids and Sault Ste. Marie. More dates will be announced soon.

Earlier in 2017, Thorogood released his first-ever solo album, Party of One, a 14-track collection featuring covers of some of George’s favorite blues and folk-influenced tunes, including songs by Robert Johnson, John Lee Hooker, Willie Dixon, Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones and Johnny Cash.
