Recorded on May 4, 2004, at the Royal Concert Hall in Nottingham, England, George Thorogood & the Destroyers sound as spirited and enthusiastic as they did 30 years ago playing bars in their Delaware hometown. While some naysayers might call the track listing repetitive, they obviously miss the point of Thorogood's live gigs to begin with. Hardcore Thorogood fans will wonder what happened to certain staples like "Move It On Over" or "I'm Wanted," but basically all of the tried and true showstoppers are included: "Bad to the Bone," John Lee Hooker's "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer," Bo Diddley's "Who Do You Love," and "I Drink Alone." George Thorogood & the Destroyers' 30th Anniversary Tour: Live is raucous, fun, and passionate, finding both band and audience having a great time.
