Slade, Sweet, Quatro Supergroup QSP Kicks Off Australian Tour Today

UK Supergroup QSP, featuring Andy Scott of Sweet, Don Powell of Slade and Suzi Quatro, kick off a national tour of Australia today in Tweed Heads.

QSP have released their self-titled debut album through Sony and grabbed their first chart anywhere in the world in Australia last week.

The group was started by the three 70s icons to pay tribute to their origins and create new music.

“We all have similar backgrounds and come from the same ballpark where we learned our craft, to coin a phrase ‘on the road’! Back then performing was the only way forward. We have huge respect for one another and approach our musicianship in the same way,” Andy Scott said.

Don Powell acknowledges the time when the three individual acts ruled the global charts together. “We share an era and still continue to work and perform separately in concerts all over the world,” he said. “After many enjoyable late night discussions it felt like the right time for us to come together to ‘pool’ our ideas. From the first drum beat, bass lick and guitar chord we knew we had something special.”

Suzi Quatro says the project started out as a covers band but quickly evolved to include original songs. “In the beginning it was fun returning to our roots by recording a few covers but eventually we started to write original songs which gave the album substance. We have created something we are all very proud of – QSP”.
