With a career now spanning over 50 years of performing, it’s “one more time for Suzi” as she returns in February 2017 for a national tour starting on the Gold Coast on February 3 and finishing in Darwin on March 4. Tickets go on sale early October.
“Well…..what can I say….eh! Australia. You’re in my bones, you’re in my blood, I was born to entertain, I had to come back – I missed you too much,” Suzi said on the announcement of the tour.
With 31 Australian tours under her belt, for this tour, Suzi will bring Andy Scott from THE SWEET on guitar and vocals and Don Powell from SLADE on drums. They will perform as “QSP” for the opening act. The trio have recorded an album “QSP” which will be released in January. Suzi will have an eight-piece band, performing the hit programme for the second half of the show, in her leather jumpsuit of course.
The tour is presented by Duet Productions and Sony Music Entertainment Australia. Denis Handlin AM, Chairman & CEO Sony Music Entertainment Australia & New Zealand and President of Asia said, “I have always been a big fan of Suzi’s amazing career and we are delighted to partner with Duet Productions for Suzi’s forthcoming Australian tour, “Leather Forever”. It will be great to see her perform in Australia again. We are also excited to be releasing Suzi’s new album “QSP” with legendary performers Andy Scott (The Sweet) and Don Powell (Slade) and we are really looking forward to them performing on the tour with Suzi”.
