If ever there’s a performer who has more than a few stories to tell, it’s legendary Status Quo lead singer & guitarist Francis Rossi. We’ve worked with the band on a few occasions over the years, and were fortunate to go to their rehearsal room at their local pub. Trust us when we say, Francis can talk the hind legs off the proverbial. He is so damn entertaining though and you really don’t want to miss out on this evening with Francis in Newport.
Francis will share the extraordinary secrets of his 50-plus years in Rock’n’Roll when he takes to the stage for this intimate evening of chat and music. Just remember what he’s achieved over that time, and continues to do today. Status Quo of course, famously opened ‘Live Aid’ back in the day. Just in case you’ve forgotten that iconic moment, here it is here. LIVE AID.
In FRANCIS ROSSI: I TALK TOO MUCH, the founder, lead singer and guitarist of Status Quo will talk about his mishaps and adventures of life on the road with one of the biggest and most loved bands ever. We’re sure he’ll talk about his latest album with Hannah Rickard, it’s really good. Have a preview of the songs here. WE TALK

His BRIT award for Outstanding Contribution to Music. And don’t forget, Status Quo have sold more than 120 million records globally. Should we have a little reminder…..
