With a career now spanning over 50 years of performing, it’s “one more time for Suzi” as she returns in February 2017.
Recently, Suzi presented her one-woman show Unzipped both the West End and on BBC Radio 2 as a two-hour Christmas special performed live at the BBC Radio Theatre in London. Suzi has had her own radio show on this station since 1999 and has recently published her first poetry book released worldwide titled Through My Eyes.
With 31 Australian tours under her belt, for this tour, Suzi will bring Andy Scott from The Sweet on guitar and vocals, and Don Powell from Slade on drums. They will perform as QSP for the opening act. The trio have recorded an album QSP which will be released in January 2017. Suzi will have an eight-piece band, performing the hit program for the second half of the show, in her leather jumpsuit of course.
Between 1973 and 1980, Suzi Quatro featured in the British charts for 101 weeks and to date sold over 55 million records including hits, “48 Crash”, “Too Big”, “Devil Gate Drive”, “Daytona Demon”, “The Wild One”, “She’s in Love with You”, “Rock Hard”, and her duet with Chris Norman, “Stumblin’ In”.
In 1977 Suzi then spread her wings and headed for the small screen playing Fonzie’s good friend, Leather Tuscadero in Happy Days. She continued to act in other television series including Minder, Dempsey and Makepeace, Absolutely Fabulous and Midsomer Murders. In 1986 Suzi made her West End debut playing the lead of Annie Oakley in Irving Berlin’s Annie Get Your Gun receiving critical acclaim. In 1991 Suzi wrote and starred in the title role in a musical about the life of actress Tallulah Bankhead entitled Tallulah Who?.
Suzi was one of the first rock and roll acts to tour to Russia where she performed to 500,000 people in six weeks in 1989.
