FRANCIS ROSSI Brand new solo live CD, DVD & Blu Ray

Brand new solo live CD, DVD & Blu Ray

Status Quo frontman Francis Rossi will release his brand new solo set Live at St. Luke’s, London on 14 March 2011. This live set is to be released on CD, DVD and Blu-ray formats by Edel’s international rock label, earMUSIC distributed in the UK & Republic of Ireland by Absolute via Universal. As well as the full concert, the DVD and Blu-ray boast excellent bonus features. The DVD has an interview with Rossi, plus the promo video for the Faded Memory single. The Blu-ray has a behind the scenes documentary, which also features interviews, plus the promo video.

Recorded in front of an enthusiastic crowd at St. Luke’s church in London, this solo show was only the seventh that Rossi has ever performed. Live at St. Luke’s, London follows on the heels of the 2010 studio album – also released through Edel – which was enthusiastically received by the rock media. Classic Rock said in their review of the St. Luke’s show: New album One Step At A Time is a surprising treat. The gig is the same, only more so. Guitar & Bass added that the material: reveals a more fragile side to the Rossi we all know – and it’s genuinely refreshing.

Long regarded as one of the finest rock performers this nation has ever produced, Rossi’s songwriting has been duly recognized by the Classic Songwriter Award and the BRIT Award for Outstanding Contribution To Music [jointly with Rick Parfitt]. Francis Rossi is famous for his dry wit and lyrical dash, and this live release offers a chance to get up close and personal with a musician doing what he does best: delivering great music live.

Rossi commented: Stepping outside Quo and recording and performing these songs was a big step for me – I love these songs so much it hurts! It was very freeing to do my own thing instead of being with a band, as I have been since I was 12! I wanted, for once, to do exactly what I wanted and, luckily, the reaction has been great. The show at St. Luke’s was very atmospheric, the band and the crowd were great and I’m really proud of what we’ve produced”
