The Quireboys "A Bit Of What You Fancy" 30th Anniversary UK Tour
Following the announcement of the release of the re-recorded version of "A Bit Of What You Fancy" – to celebrate its 30th Anniversary – The Quireboys will embark on a UK tour from December 2020 to February 2021, where they will play the classic album in its entirety. Australian beer drinking rock n roll warriors Massive are returning to the UK as tour support for the Quireboys.
The Quireboys have always remained true to their roots from the start. The boy's mission is simply to keep the spirit of good time rock ‘n’ roll alive and kicking into the 21st century.
The Quireboys are an English hard rock band formed in 1984 in London, with strong ties to Newcastle. When the band formed, they were originally known as The Queerboys and later as the London Quireboys in the United States and Canada, settling at last with their current name.
The band were successful during the late 1980s and early 1990s, with their debut album A Bit of What You Fancy reaching No. 2 on the UK charts. Their highest charting single was with the song Hey You.
In 1993, the Quireboys broke up but briefly reformed live in 1995 with different members. A more permanent reformation came in 2001 when frontman Spike and guitarist Guy Griffin put together a new line-up.
The band is still active, constantly recording new material and playing live all over the world. Their latest album, Amazing Disgrace, was released on 5 April 2019.
