George Thorogood & the Destroyers and Brian Setzer Line Up US Co-Headlining Tour in May and June

M_GeorgeThorogoodBrianSetzer630_021015Fans of old-time rock ‘n’ roll will get a real treat in the late spring when George Thorogood and the Destroyers and founding Stray Cats frontman Brian Setzer team up for a U.S. trek.  The outing, which will stop in cities across the country, is scheduled to kick off on May 27 in Red Bank, New Jersey, and is mapped out through a June 20 concert in Saratoga, California.

The tour marks the first time in more than 20 years that Thorogood and Setzer have hit the road together.  Brian currently is promoting his latest studio album, 2014’s Rockabilly Riot!: All Original, which features 12 new rockabilly-inspired songs.

Setzer says of the upcoming joint trek, “Blues and Billy with a kick!  Where else you gonna see this?!?”

Thorogood adds, “I am looking forward to working with Brian again.   He is a great American artist and a true rock & roller in the classic rockabilly fashion!”

Prior to their dates with Setzer, George and his longtime backing group will launch their 2015 Badder than Ever Tour with a series of U.S. headlining dates beginning February 27 in Burlington, Vermont.
