The Quireboys are currently touring their re-mastered and re-recorded anniversary release of their iconic album A Bit of What You Fancy and have added a series of dates in Sweden in December 2021.
Following the band’s inception in London, UK in 1984 – originally as The Choirboys, then The Queerboys, before settling on the less controversial name of The Quireboys – there followed 6 years of hard graft and personnel changes before the inevitable happened – a UK number 2 album.
Despite supporting a certain Guns N’ Roses at the legendary Hammersmith Odeon in London it was the 1990’s A Bit of What You Fancy that brought the band to the attention of the public at large and featured founder member Spike on vocals and new recruit Guy Griffin on guitar. The record showcased no fewer than 5 hit singles – including Hey You which peaked at number 5 in the US Billboard Rock Chart and number 14 in the UK Singles Chart.
The Quireboys are certainly enjoying a revival – selling out venues around the world – with 2018 also taking in The Monsters of Rock Cruise, HRH AOR VI, Sweden Rock and Stonedeaf festivals. 2019 will see a brand new studio album – their 12th – as part of a pledge campaign… so be a part of the never-ending Quireboys party – as there’s no sign of Spike, Guy, Keith and Paul slowing down any time soon!
