The tour will reach a triumphant conclusion at the world-famous Whisky a Go Go in West Hollywood – and for the tour The Quireboys are joined by the amazing Midnight Devils and Steve Ramone.

HBO Max’s brand new series Peacemaker takes the titular superhero and expands upon what audiences learned about him in the 2021 movie The Suicide Squad. The Quireboys song called ‘I Don’t Love You Anymore‘ plays underneath Peacemaker’s dance.
Sharing a music era with acts such as Poison, Mötley Crüe, and other early ’90s pre-grunge hair metal outfits, they dove into a more blues soundscape. While The Quireboys may appear unfamiliar to an American audience, they were a popular part of the English rock scene in the 1990s and remain a functional, producing band who are embracing their prime. With a No. 2 album on the British charts with ‘A Bit of What You Fancy‘ in 1990, and have previously opened for the likes of Guns N’ Roses and The Rolling Stones.
Heading out on HBO Worldwide soon!
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.
Spike and Guy have been the backbone of THE quintessential British rock’n’roll band ever since – a journey that has seen them play to 72,000 at 1990’s Monsters of Rock at Donington with the likes of Whitesnake, Aerosmith and Poison – supporting The Rolling Stones that same year, and joining Guns N’ Roses again a couple of years later on their “Use Your Illusion” tour.
The public’s appetite for The Quireboys had returned and hasn’t waned since – 3 further studio releases (Well Oiled, Homewreckers & Heartbreakers, Halfpenny Dancer) were released on various labels from 2004 to 2009 before the band found their new – and permanent – home on Off Yer Rocka – the label of the renowned festival brand Hard Rock Hell.
The Quireboys are certainly enjoying a revival – selling out venues around the world – with 2018 also taking in The Monsters of Rock Cruise (they return to the cruise in 2022!), HRH AOR VI, Sweden Rock and Stonedeaf festivals. 2019 saw a brand new studio album – their 12th called Amazing Disgrace.
An anniversary edition – fully re-recorded – of ‘A Bit Of What You Fancy‘ drew much acclaim in 2021 and shows the band are still as current as they ever were.… 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!
