Three shows lost due to illness

Status Quo have been forced to cancel three sell-out concerts to illness. Rick Parfitt has been diagnosed as suffering from upper respiratory tract infection.

The band are primarily known for their touring and live shows, and the cancellation of shows is always a last resort. The band bitterly regret having to take this course of action and apologise to all fans affected, but there was no alternative.

Francis Rossi added, "We're really sorry to have had to let the fans down, but Rick has picked up an infection and is in no fit state to take to the stage and the last thing we would ever want to do is to give a substandard performance".

The affected shows:

29 Jan - Ipswich Regent
30 Jan - Ipswich Regent
31 Jan - Stoke Victoria Hall

Due to the band's schedule, it will not be possible to re-schedule these shows. A full refund is available at the original point of purchase.
