George Thorogood and the Destroyers Silver Legacy 8 PM
2120 South Michigan Avenue, home of Chicago's Chess Records, may be the most important address in the bloodline of the blues and rock ‘n' roll. Join Silver Legacy in welcoming George Thorogood & the Destroyers on Friday, September 21 at the Grande Exposition Hall.
That address – immortalized in the Rolling Stones' like-named instrumental, recorded at an epochal session at Chess in June 1964 and included on the band's album 12 X 5 – serves as the title to George Thorogood's electrifying Capitol/EMI salute to the Chess label and its immortal artists.
Thorogood has been essaying the Chess repertoire since his 1977 debut album, which included songs by Elmore James and Bo Diddley that originated on the label. He has cut 18 Chess covers over the years; three appeared on his last studio release, 2009's The Dirty Dozen. On 2120 South Michigan Avenue, he offers a full-length homage to the label that bred his style with interpretations of 10 Chess classics.
