After spending much of 2004 on the road to mark their 30th anniversary, George Thorogood & The Destroyers head into their fourth decade of touring with a North American outing this spring.

Currently on break after wrapping up the anniversary run last month, the Thorogood and company are set to launch the North American trek in mid-May, beginning with a series of Canadian shows, including a three-night stand in Thunder Bay, Ontario. A subsequent series of U.S. dates currently stretches into early June. Details are shown below.

"As I looked into the faces of our audiences every night, I noticed that we attracted a lot of � older fans to the gigs along with the kids," Thorogood said of last year's anniversary outing in a statement posted at his website. "It reminded me that rock and roll has been around for a long time, and I hope our fans continue to enjoy us as much as we enjoy playing for them."

Capitol Records/EMI marked the group's anniversary with last May's release of "George Thorogood & The Destroyers Greatest Hits: 30 Years of Rock." The 16-song 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.".

"George Thorogood & The Destroyers 30th Anniversary Tour: Live in Europe," a concert DVD shot during the group's 2004 outing, followed in October.

Thorogood & The Destroyers' most recent studio album is 2003's "Ride 'til I Die." Formed in 1974, the group released its self-titled debut in 1977.
