Legendary Status Quo rocker Francis Rossi brings his solo tour to Hertfordshire next year.

The Quo lead singer will share the extraordinary secrets of his 50-plus years in rock ‘n’ roll when he takes to the stage for an intimate evening in Watford.

Rossi will talk about his mishaps and adventures as he opens up about the highs and lows of a life on the road with one of the biggest and most loved bands ever in Francis Rossi: I Talk Too Much at Watford Colosseum on Saturday, April 27, 2019.

It will be an evening of chat and music with the man behind Quo hits such as Down Down, Caroline, Paper Plane, What You’re Proposing and Pictures of Matchstick Men.

Rossi said: “This show is something new for me. I’ll be looking back at some of the unbelievable things that have happened during my career.

“It’ll be good to get on the road once again and to do these shows.

“It will be live and unscripted, so God knows what could happen! One things 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.”

Tickets for the show are priced £29, and £36.50 for VIPs, who get seats in the front rows and an exclusive VIP lanyard and signed photograph.

For more details, visit or call ticketing on 01923 571102.

Francis is a true member of British rock royalty.

The founder, lead singer and lead guitarist of Quo started his first band in 1962 and created Status Quo in 1967.

The band has since toured almost constantly, sold over 120 million albums globally and enjoyed more UK singles chart hits than any other rock band in history.

Rossi sang the first words at Live Aid in 1985, survived the obligatory rock ‘n’ roll brush with alcohol and drugs, was awarded an OBE in 2010 and has a BRIT for his Outstanding Contribution to Music.

Having spent longer on the UK singles chart than The Beatles, while also making an amusing diversion into TV with an appearance on Coronation Street, the now teetotal father-of-eight has some of the best rock ‘n’ roll stories ever, accrued during an extraordinary life on the road.

And in I Talk Too Much, he will share many of them for the first time.

Expect laughter, revelations, tales involving some of the giants of music, exclusive video clips, snatches of classic tunes and a great night out.

Rossi will be joined on stage at the Rickmansworth Road venue by award-winning writer and broadcaster Mick Wall, who has sold more than one million books.

The Status Quo star added: “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 ride, there’s a lot to share – I just hope I don’t talk too much.”
