“I have been touring Australia regularly since 1974, and have lost count of how many times I have been here, but I think this tour will be number 29! It’s my second home and I love it dearly. This year I celebrated my 50th year in the business and it just felt like the right time to take my final bow. It’s a daunting prospect and one I am preparing seriously for. I want this to be a night to remember in every way… tears, laughter and lots of rock and roll. This has been my life. Nobody in the world rocks as hard as the Aussies… and from me that’s what they’re gonna get… foot on the gas and go. So looking forward to this tour”
Celebrating 50 years of performing, Suzi Quatro returns in January 2015 for her last Australian tour. With 30 Australian tours under her belt, this will be the final chance for Australian fans to see their rocker Suzi on stage. Australian promoter Harley Medcalf, Duet Productions said today "this will be our 15th Suzi Quatro tour. Duet Productions did the first ever Australian tour in the 70's, so it's a great honour to be presenting the Final One for the Wild One. The tour will kick off in Perth, January 28th and Finish in Cairns on March 1st 2015.
Born in Detroit Michigan, Suzi was raised in a musical family who all played various instruments. Suzi made her stage debut playing bongos in her father's Jazz Band, The Quatro Trio. From an early age, she studied classical piano and percussion and at the age of 14 began an all girl band with her sister Patti calling themselves The Pleasure Seekers. Suzi was 'told' she would be playing bass guitar which was as tall as she was and also became the lead singer. In 1969 they changed their name to cradle and it was this band that caught the attention of famed record producer Mickie Most who offered her a solo contract.
She went to the UK in 1971 to begin her journey to fame. Suzi began working with the now legendary songwriters Chinn and Chapman which resulted with her first magic hit "Can the Can" which went to #1 around the world, sold over 2.5 million copies. In the past four years the original video has nearly 6 million hits.
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 girlfriend, Leather Tuscadero in Happy Days. She continued to act in other television series including Minder, Dempsy and Makepeace, Absolutely Fabulous and Midsome 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.
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.
In 1999 Suzi began her radio career with BBC Radio2. She was nominated for Music Broadcaster of the Year at the Sony Radio Awards in 2006. Suzi released her autobiography in 2007 which made the Top Seller Lists around the world.
