March 24, 2004 04:02 PM - George Thorogood & The Destroyers have added more dates to their 30th anniversary tour, and are also marking the milestone with an upcoming best-of album.

The group, which last week finished up its first leg of U.S. shows, head north next month for a handful of Canadian dates, and are due to launch another round of U.S. performances in late June. Dates so far stretch into late August.

VH1 Classic has signed on as the summer tour's sponsor, according to a press release.

On May 18, Capitol Records/EMI will release "George Thorogood & The Destroyers Greatest Hits: 30 Years of Rock." The 16-song, 78-minute compilation features "Bad to the Bone," "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer," "Move It On Over," "You Talk Too Much," "If You Don't Start Drinking (I'm Gonna Leave)" and more.

Also included on the set is a previously unreleased version of "Rockin' My Life Away" and a remixed version of "Who Do You Love," according to Capitol/EMI.

Thorogood & The Destroyers' most recent album is last year's "Ride 'til I Die."

Though he and his group have been recording and touring for three decades, Thorogood says he hasn't grown tired of life on the road.

"When the Destroyers go on the road, we realize we're still living our dream," he said in a statement. "It doesn't matter that 30 years have gone by, we're still having fun. Let me repeat: F-U-N, fun!"
