Australia has always loved the ultra-cool American singer/songwriter and bassist, skyrocketing her to number one on multiple singles, championing her since her ’73 wake-up and celebrating her untamed live shows since ’74.

Suzi reminisces, “Looking back on my career, 60 years now in the “biz”, and now my 40th tour of Australia, I still can’t believe it. Since my first time in 1974, with two tours that year, I totally fell head over heels for Australia, with the country and the people, everything about it”

Quatro has been at the forefront of the rock n roll scene and music industry since those early days in both her capacity as a musicians and also through radio broadcasting. Never idle, always moving is her motto and one that at 74 years of age continues to remain true.

In her recent milestones, her documentary, Suzi Q was released, in 2019, first in Australia (her number one fanclub), playing in 92 cinemas, then the UK playing in 52 cinema’s and across Europe, and in July, post covid in the USA. The film has been a huge critical success drawing 4 and 5 stars in all media reviews. Significantly, 2023 marked the 50th anniversary of ‘Can the Can’ being number one.

Suzi’s recent album releases include, in 2021 a second album, with her son Richard, The Devil in Me. In 2022, Uncovered was released on the Sun record label. In August, she released her duet album with singer/songwriter guitarist KT Tunstall, Face to Face. There is no sign of slowing down for the rock chick who is well over-due for her Rock n Roll Hall of Fame honour.
