A BIT OF WHAT YOU FANCY 30th ANNIVERSARY TOUR RE-SCHEDULED DATES.
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 Quirerboys 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 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 last album,before the 30th Anniversary release, was “Amazing Disgrace”, was released on 5 April 2019.
The Quireboys have re-scheduled four dates on their highly anticipated “A Bit Of What You Fancy” 30th
Anniversary Tour” to June 2022. The rescheduled dates include Oxford, Bullingdon (June 11), Southend,
Chinnerys (12 June), Bristol, Thekla (June 17), and Nottingham, Rescue Rooms (June 18). All tickets
To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of “A Bit Of What You Fancy”, the Quireboys are currently re-recording
their iconic debut album with their distinctive gypsy rock and roll sound.
The album will be available on CD, digital and limited-edition vinyl. The CD includes bonus live tracks.
“A Bit of What You Fancy is where it all began for the Quireboys,” says the band’s frontman Spike. “It was
an incredible album that launched our career. However, the way we sound and play now doesn’t do it
justice. Henceforth, it has been a pleasure updating it to our modern-day gypsy rock and roll sound. I’m
sure everyone will enjoy this new version in all its glory, marking its 30th Anniversary.”
