Quo’s Francis Rossi Announces Solo Tour
Francis Rossi will go live – without a ponytail – when he undertakes his first ever solo tour in May 2010.
The One Step At A Time tour – which takes its name from his debut album to be released in April 2010 – will take in six UK dates.
Tickets for the tour go on sale at 9am tomorrow (December 18) from www.livenation.co.uk and 0844 576 5483.
This solo tour, we hear, will allow Rossi to reveal another side of himself to the rock fraternity and also to step outside the Status Quo machine and indulge
Rossi commented: “I never stop writing songs and melodies but there have been many tracks over the years that just weren’t right for Quo. These songs have been gathering dust in my mind for too long and now seems the right time to showcase them. It’s a big step for me but I hope to see lots of the same faces out there on the road.”
Rossi will be accompanied by an eight-piece band on the tour.
The dates are:
May 12 Edinburgh Queen’s Hall
May 13 Birmingham Town Hall
May 14 Manchester Academy
May 16 London Her Majesty’s Theatre
May 18 Cardiff Glee Club
May 19 Sheffield Memorial Hall
