Gord and I had tickets ... we were in row L in the orchestra section on the left. We've seen them a few times ... the last time was in June 2012.
Trampled Under Foot, a blues band from Kansas, opened for them. I'd never heard of them and they were good. They recently won two awards at the 35th annual Blues Music Awards in Memphis.

Here's a video of them if you want to hear their sound.
When George Thorogood and the Destroyers came out, the crowd went nuts.
|These guys never sat down all night|
Thorogood ducked backstage at one point and came back wearing a Canada teeshirt, to the crowd's delight.

They played for an hour and a half.
Thorogood is smart and played all the songs the crowd wanted to hear (and knew all the words to). At 64 years old, he's not a young man anymore but he's still entertaining and is a ham with the crowd. He obviously loves what he does.
It was a fun concert and no doubt we'll go see them again.
