Suzi Quatro: film preview and Q&A

Duke of York’s Cinema, Brighton, Monday, October 7

SEVENTIES rock star Suzi Quatro will be heading to the seaside this autumn, but not for a gig.

The singer, who made her name with hits such as Devil Gate Drive and Can The Can, will be appearing at the Duke of York’s Cinema to answer fans’ questions following a screening of a new documentary about her

life which is released in October.

The event is part of a seven-date tour of the UK, in which Suzi will go to cinemas across the country to discuss the film.

Directed by Australian film maker Liam Firmager, Suzi Q documents the professional career of the Detroit-born singer, who lives in the UK.

Suzi is considered by many to be the first female rocker to break into the mainstream, rewriting the rule book for what was expected of women in rock music. The film has been four and a half years in the making and will explore the many aspects of Suzi’s career, from music to acting, poetry to songwriting.

Liam said: “There is only one Suzi Quatro.

“She has sold 55 million records and still fills stadiums around the world.

“She was so influential but has yet to be recognised for her contribution to music.

“This film is an attempt to readdress that and introduce her to a new generation.”

Special guests who appear in the film include the likes of Alice Cooper, Debbie Harry, Joan Jett, Henry Winkler, KT Tunstall and Mike Chapman.

Suzi will be doing Q&A sessions in London, Brighton, Glasgow, Liverpool, Darlington and Bristol.

The film will be released worldwide on October 11, but these screenings will be a chance to see it before anyone else.

You will then be able to quiz the star herself about her career and what the future may hold.
