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.
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 no 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 Tuscardero in Happy Days. She continued to act in other television series including Minder, Dempsy and Makepeace, Absolutley fabulous and Midsomer Murders. In 1986 Suzi made her West End debut playing the lead of Annie Oakey 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.
