Known for their hit tunes ‘Bad to the bone’, ‘Who do you love’ and ‘Move it on over’, George Thorogood and the Destroyers will perform for fans at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip on Thursday, August 10th. The band’s show will follow Doug Danger’s Rattlesnake Jump, an attempt to jump Evel Knievel’s 1972 Harley-Davidson 120ft. over a pit filled with live rattlesnakes.
A nonstop touring rock and roll machine since the ‘70s, George Thorogood And The Destroyers celebrated 40 years of performing together in 2014. In that time the band’s signature snarling, buzz saw bluesy rock ‘n’ roll blend generated classic rock staples like “Bad to the Bone,” “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer,” “I Drink Alone,” “Who Do You Love,” “Move it On Over,” and many more.
“George Thorogood is bringing some of the most well-known hits in the world to the Chip this summer,” said Rod Woodruff, Sturgis Buffalo Chip President. “And if you’re in the crowd you’ll get to experience the power of these classic tunes in the best way possible, through the band’s explosive live performance. I expect everyone in the audience will be singing along to every word.”
In addition to nine nights of world-class concerts the American Flat Track Buffalo Chip TT presented by Indian Motorcycle will light up the amphitheater on Sun., Aug. 6. The Moto Stampede continues in 2017 with Hooligan Races presented by Indian Motorcycle and authentic Street Drag Races on Wed., Aug 9.
Of course, as the saying famously goes, there’s more with the Buffalo Chip planning to announce more headlining main stage entertainment in the coming weeks.
