George Thorogood & The Destroyers to headline 2024 Carb Day Concert

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The 2024 Miller Lite Carb Day Concert is going to be “Bad to the Bone”! George Thorogood & The Destroyers will rev up race fans at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Friday, May 24.

George Thorogood & The Destroyers will be joined by special guest Gin Blossoms, who will open the show.

The Carb Day concert gates will open at 2 p.m. this year, allowing for more entertainment including Indy-based rapper and recording artist Kid Quill.

“Carb Day is the unofficial start to summer and the kick off to race weekend for many of our fans; they take the day off from work and spend it at IMS,” IMS President J. Douglas Boles said. “From on-track action like the final practice and Pit Stop Competition to hip DJs and cool rock concerts, it’s a day like no other at the Racing Capital of the World.”
