'I TALK TOO MUCH' - The Spoken Word Tour 2019
Francis Rossi in conversation with UK rock journalist & best selling author Mick Wall.
Francis Rossi will talk about his mishaps and adventures as he opens up about the highs and lows of a life on the road with Status Quo.
And in "I Talk Too Much", Francis will share some of the best rock’n’roll stories ever, accrued during an extraordinary life on the road. Expect laughter, revelations, tales involving some of the giants of music, exclusive video clips, snatches of classic tunes and a great night out. He’ll be taking his guitar along to demonstrate how some of those Quo classics came about. Francis Rossi will be joined on stage by award-winning writer and broadcaster Mick Wall, who has sold more than 1 million books.
Set: Part 1 (about 50+ minutes) - Conversation Mick Wall > Francis Rossi included video clips screened and he played a few short bits of songs like Pictures Of Matchstick Men, Spinning Wheel Blues and In My Chair on a acoustic guitar. Intermission (about 20 minutes), Part 2 - Q&A (about 40+ minutes). He ended the evening with a rendition of Caroline. After the show he'll be signing his new book and album but only sign the book and CD if you buy it at the venue (both for £ 20).
