Seasoned blues-rockers George Thorogood (tickets | music) & The Destroyers are gearing up for a late-winter/early spring tour, and are also working on a new album due out later this year.

The roadwork kicks off at the beginning of March, and dates are stacked up through the end of that month. The band also has a handful of May, July and August shows lined up. Details are in the itinerary shown below.

A European tour is set for May 28-June 11. More information about that stretch of shows is posted at the group's website.

Thorogood and company continue to back their career retrospective "George Thorogood: 30 Years of Rock." Released in May of 2004, the set currently resides in the top slot on Billboard's Top Blues Albums chart, a position it held for 42 weeks last year, according to a press release.

Also in 2004, Thorogood issued "George Thorogood & The Destroyers 30th Anniversary Tour--Live in Europe." The DVD captures the group's performance at the Royal Concert Hall in Nottingham, England, and also features behind-the-scenes footage and interview clips.

Thorogood & The Destroyers' most recent studio album is 2003's "Ride 'til I Die." Thorogood has been writing and recording a follow-up with longtime collaborator Tom Hambridge. In addition to penning new material, the pair is working up new versions of songs originally recorded by blues legends such as Hound Dog Taylor, John Lee Hooker, Jimmy Reed and others.
