Thorogood says he ain't stopping till he's run over or left for dead...

George Thorogood & The Destroywers are hitting the road for a four week US tour that will bring them to Hard Rock Café in Orlando, FL on March 18th.

2008 is shaping up to be a busy year for the brash, iconic and outspoken George Thorogood, with plans for a new album and non-stop touring.

"We're hitting the ground running and not going to stop until we're run over or left for dead," laughs Thorogood. "Remember, rock and roll doesn't sleep, it just passes out."

In 2007, the rocker and his band did over 70 shows in the U.S. including headlining concerts, a dozen dates with Bryan Adams, key performances at prestigious gigs like the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Memphis' Beale Street Festival, Red Rocks in Colorado with Buddy Guy and Montreal's International Jazz Festival, plus a tour of Europe. He was also inducted into Guitar Center's "Rock Walk" by KLOS radio's Jim Ladd. "It was a good year," says Lonesome George. "What's next?"

Thorogood's last studio set was 2006's The Hard Stuff Last year was the 25th anniversary of his landmark album, Bad To The Bone.
