The Quireboys – Announce UK Tour In March

The Quireboys
The ‘Boys Are Back In Town!
Rock n Roll Royalty are Kings of The Road

Hard gigging, hard living, hard rocking: homegrown heroes The Quireboys have reinforced their reputation as kings of the road after announcing a slew of new dates for 2016.

The band will spring back into action in March for 15 full electric shows across the UK and Ireland.

Digging deep to unearth some rarely heard gems – and mining jewels from the critically acclaimed St Cecilia And The Gypsy Soul (reviewed by PlanetMosh here)  – The Quireboys have promised a setlist rooted in brazenly honest rock and roll.

And they’ll be bringing a whole bunch of brilliant bands along for the ride for what promises to be one of the must-see tours of 2016.

Eight of the shows see The Quireboys headline the brand new HRH AOR On The Road Tour – with main support from 80s hair metal heroes Faster Pussycat and super Swedes Bonafide.

“It will be more than 18 months since we played so many full electrics shows across the UK and it’s time we treated the fans to a big old party,” said singer Spike.

“We’ll be rolling out an all-new set featuring our favourite songs from the last four records, all the classics and some tunes that have never been played live. Let’s see how that works out!”

2015 has been the band’s most successful year to date with a main stage slot at Sweden Rock, sold-out dates in the USA and scores of UK and European headline shows complementing superb new album St Cecilia And The Gypsy Soul.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
