George Thorogood & The Destroyers
Even those unfamiliar with his name know his riffs. The team of guitar and saxophone that opens “Bad to the Bone” with “dah-na-na-na-nah” injects a sonic testosterone shot that bellows “here comes trouble.” Although George Thorogood & The Destroyers had cranked out two solid albums of searing blues-rock in the ’70s that led them to open for the Rolling Stones, it was that 1982 hit that skyrocketed them into the mainstream. From there they landed one single after another: smashes such as “Who Do You Love?” and “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer” that earned ubiquity on the soundtracks of movies and mid-life crises. Still riding high off 2011’s 2120 South Michigan Avenue—a tribute to the Chess Records heroes such as Elmore James, Bo Diddly, and cohort Buddy Guy—the Pennzoil-voiced Thorogood continues to blaze through live sets that barnstorm the blues songbook.
As eventgoers perch under the stately domed ceiling inside Lynn Auditorium, they can take in a show against an elegant red-curtain backdrop and sleek wooden accents. The distinguished interior of the event center augments the caliber of performances available in the form of concerts and holiday specials such as Kenny Rogers and The Vienna Boys Choir. The entertainment unfolds amid newly renovated elements such as updated seating and high-tech lighting that’s capable of illuminating the next line in an actor’s head.
