FRANCIS ROSSI to release book and album in 201…

Francis Rossi, founder of the mighty Quo, is gearing up for a busy 2019.  Rossi, a bona fide musical legend, has confirmed the release of a collaborative album with vocalist Hannah Rickard, a brand new autobiography written with Mick Wall, and a spoken word tour that will see him and Wall tour the country discussing his Quo guitarist’s illustrious career and taking questions from fans.

‘We Talk Too Much’ is the title of the album by Rossi / Rickard – the pair met when Hannah Rickard worked with Status Quo on the hugely successful ‘Aquostic’ projects.  Reconnecting with one of Rossi’s true loves, this is a collection of Country-flavoured duets and is due for release 15 March 2019 via earMUSIC / Edel. Featuring all brand-new material, and boasting writing credits for Rossi and Rickard as well as Quo stalwart Bob Young, this album has been a true labour of love.

The new autobiography, ‘I Talk Too Much’, is to be published by Little, Brownon 14 March 2019.  This gripping brand-new book has been created in conjunction with award-winning writer and broadcaster Mick Wall, who has sold more than 1 million books.  In this explosive new memoir, the famously indiscreet Rossi reveals the true-life stories behind his unbelievable career. Painfully honest at times, the book covers the glory years, the dark days, the ups and downs of his relationship with the late Rick Parfitt and the real stories behind the creation of some of the greatest rock music of all time.

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 at 36 theatres across the UK [see below]. Kicking off on 20 March 2019 in Whitley Bay and culminating on 20 May in King’s Lynn, 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 said: “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.”

Bang Bang Romeo will be joining P!nk on her 2019 European tour!

Front-woman Stars has spoken of her excitement to hit the road with P!nk:
“I remember being stood in the kitchen with my Dad, singing Like A Pill at the top of my lungs when I was a kid. I remember being sat in the school cloakroom with one of my best friends singing Dear Mr President when I was in my teens. I remember singing Lady Marmalade on karaoke, the Moulin Rouge version on a night out with my friends after college at 18. Will I remember supporting one of my all-time heroes on her 2019 European tour with my band? You bet your life.”

STEVE HACKETT announces 2019 tour

The irrepressible former Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett announces his 2019 European Tour. Setting off on 2nd November 2019, Steve and his band will perform 20 shows around the UK.

For the first time ever, Steve will perform the seminal Genesis album Selling England By The Pound in its entirety. Released in 1973, the album went to No. 3 in the UK charts and has been described as ‘the definitive Genesis album.’ It includes firm favourites such as Dancing with the Moonlit Knight, Firth of Fifth, Cinema Show and, of course, I Know What I Like (In Your Wardrobe). Other favourite classic Genesis tracks will also feature in the show.

2019 also marks the 40th anniversary of one of Steve’s most popular solo albums Spectral Mornings and Steve will rightly celebrate this milestone by performing masterpieces from the album.
Fans will also be treated to highlights from Steve’s new album, to be released in 2019.

BIANCA DEL RIO announces UK/Ireland tour – inc…

After two consecutive sell-out UK tours including three sold out nights at London’s Eventim Apollo, comedy queen and RuPaul’s Drag Race champion Bianca Del Rio has announced that she will be returning to the UK for a huge arena tour including an unprecedented date at the London SSE Wembley Arena on Saturday 21 September 2019 the biggest ever solo drag show in the UK.

Tickets go on general sale this Friday 5 October 2018 at 9am via https://www.eventbrite.co.uk. There will also be an exclusive pre-sale on Wednesday 3 October at 9am which you can only access if you sign up to the following link.

Bianca Del Rio said: ‘I’ve been told I’ll be the first drag queen to headline at Wembley Arena!

Heavy/ slow duo, BISMUTH have confirmed detail…

Heavy/ slow duo, BISMUTH have confirmed details of their upcoming album, titled The Slow Dying of the Great Barrier Reef. The album will be released on November 2 via a collaboration between four independent labels; Dry Cough (UK), Rope or Guillotine (NL), Medusa Crush (CA), and Tartarus Records (NL) will jointly share release duties. 

The Slow Dying of the Great Barrier Reef is a two song opus with quite self explanatory subject matter, lyric-wise. Outside of the band, Tanya Byrne, is a volcanologist with a passion for environmental science. She explains:

“The current political discourse on how to reduce our impact on ecosystems is stuck in semantics, all while these systems degrade. I believe we can reduce our impact, and I am hopeful that solutions will be found. However, many of these solutions are halted, while governments argue over who is to blame. The album title makes reference to the fact that climate change is affecting this habitat extremely, and inaction is one of the biggest causes of it’s decline." 

BISMUTH will be touring throughout November in support of The Slow Dying of the Great Barrier Reef, including dates with Canadian duo Vile Creature.

BISMUTH UK tour dates:

23.11 – Nottingham
24.11 – Manchester
25.11 – Glasgow
