by Victoria Holdsworth
He has been rocking all over the world for decades and legendary Status Quo lead singer Francis Rossi is ready to share the extraordinary secrets of his 50-plus years in rock’n’roll. He’s taking to the stage where he will talk about his mishaps and adventures as he opens up about the highs and lows of a life on the road with one of the biggest and most loved bands ever in ‘Francis Rossi: I Talk Too Much’.
Francis is a true member of British rock royalty. The founder, lead singer and lead guitarist of Quo started his first band in 1962 and created Status Quo in 1967. The band has since toured almost constantly, sold over 120 million albums globally and enjoyed more UK singles chart hits than any other rock band in history.
The ‘I Talk Too Much’ tour, will feature Francis – joined by Mick Wall – sharing some of the best rock ‘n’ roll stories ever, accrued during an extraordinary life on the road. Expect laughter, revelations, tales involving some of the giants of music, exclusive video clips, snatches of classic tunes and a great night out.
Rossi says: “This show is something new for me. It will be live and unscripted, so god knows what could happen! One thing’s for sure though, it’ll be a white-knuckle ride for me, but fans will get a real unvarnished insight into what’s happened over the years. I’ll be taking a guitar along to demonstrate how some of those Quo classics came into being, and hopefully we’ll take a few questions from the audience too. It’s been quite a journey, there’s a lot to share.”
