Legendary Status Quo lead singer Francis Rossi will share the extraordinary secrets of his 50-plus years in rock’n’roll when he takes to the stage for an intimate evening. Rossi 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.
Rossi sang the first words at Live Aid in 1985, survived the obligatory rock’n’roll brush with alcohol and drugs, was awarded an OBE in 2010 and has a BRIT for his Outstanding Contribution to Music.
Having spent longer on the UK singles chart than The Beatles, while also making an amusing diversion into TV with an appearance on Coronation Street, the teetotal father-of-eight has some of the best rock’n’roll stories ever, accrued during an extraordinary life on the road. In I Talk Talk Too Much, he’ll share many of them for the first time.
Expect laughter, revelations, tales involving some of the giants of music, exclusive video clips, snatches of classic tunes and a great night out.
