After the success of last year's QuoFestive,
the band return with friends in 2012

Live Nation is proud to announce that Britain's best-loved rockers Status Quo will undertake a 10 date UK Winter tour in 2012. Last year's "QuoFestive" tour was a massive success and the band are delighted to be joined at some of the shows by very special guests Bonnie Tyler and Eddie & The Hot Rods. This killer line-up is not to be missed and is sure to be the ultimate musical Christmas party. Tickets are on sale from 0900 on Friday 6 July from www.ticketmaster.co.uk.

Status Quo themselves need no introduction: more hit singles than any other band, more hit albums than The Beatles, more appearances on TOTP than any other act; the superlatives keep coming. Their latest single "The Winner" has been placed on the BBC Radio 2 playlist, the fifth consecutive single from recent album "Quid Pro Quo" to achieve that feat, and is available from iTunes from 2 July. Bonnie Tyler is the powerhouse vocalist known for such gigantic hits as 'Total Eclipse of the Heart', 'Holding Out For A Hero', 'It's A Heartache' and more. These rare UK performances ? at the Cardiff, Birmingham and London shows - are going to be a real treat. Eddie & The Hot Rods, known for hits like 'Teenage Depression' and 'Do Anything You Wanna Do', will support at Bournemouth, Brighton, Blackpool, Cardiff, Birmingham and London.
