Choirboys hold talks with Quireboys about tour

AUSTRALIA’s Choirboys and Britain’s Quireboys have held talks about staging the most confusing double bill in rock.
Quireboys guitarist Guy Griffin told the White Line Fever podcast two years ago: “Maybe we should do a double headline tour with the Choirboys! In Australia!”
It’s an idea that Choirboys singer Mark Gable has since followed up upon.
“I think Mark spoke to the keyboard player and I think it just kind of hit a brick wall,” bassist Ian Hulme told the same program recently.
“…not through anything other than perhaps they’re just two guys who couldn’t get it together
“It sounds like it would be a fun thing to do so you never know. If the universe helps put it together we might see a double act which would be great.
“They should come here and do some shows with us and we should go there and do some shows with them.”
It was the Australian band which caused the Spike Gray-fronted Quireboys to change their name in the United States to London Quireboys.
Hulme continues: “There was maybe a little bit of drama made about it, from our management to their manager but I think the bands really just get on with doing what they do.
“Today, it’s a bit of a funny story really.”
