We count 5 trips to Maine from  George Thorogood over the years. His first concert in Blimpville was at the Expo in 1985 on the Maverick tour. The next time he brought the show to Portland with the Destroyers happened on the Born to Be Bad tour in 1988. WBLM remembers having the honor of going onstage before that show to welcome the crowd. We brought along big framed piece of autographed Thorogood memorabilia, held it up to cheers and we gave away the next day on the WBLM Morning Show. The Blimp was there with him in ’88 and we’re still with him today! In fact, we just got the news that he's bringing his Rock Party Tour to Portland next spring, close to the 30th anniversary of the last time he played the Civic Center. George Thorogood and the Destroyers will be just across the street at Aura on April 22, 2018! Tickets go on-sale Friday November 3 at 10am. According to their press release, the band is also donating proceeds to The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. LET'S GET READY TO BOOGIE!
