24 March 2014

With special guests Chas & Dave

Live Nation is proud to announce that Britain’s best-loved rockers will undertake the 11 date “Status Quo Live In Concert” UK Winter tour in December 2014. The tour will go on general sale on Friday, March 28th from www.livenation.co.uk or www.ticketmaster.co.uk. The exclusive Fan Club pre-sale will commence on Monday, March 24th. The band are delighted that support at all dates will come from Chas & Dave!

This tour sees Francis Rossi, Rick Parfitt, Andy Bown, John ‘Rhino’ Edwards and new boy Leon Cave bringing back their thunderous live show to the nation’s venues. Packed with hits, both new and old, taken from that unbelievable back catalogue, “Live In Concert” is a series of dates not to be missed.

2014 has been a vintage year for the band in every sense. March 2014 sees the “Status Quo Live In Concert” go on sale but also the valedictory dates from the Frantic Four line-up of the band. Additionally, the band’s seminal 1972 ‘Piledriver’ album – their first on the legendary Vertigo label - is being issued as a Deluxe Edition with bonus material by Universal. The band have also teamed up with the Wychwood Brewery to create the ‘Piledriver’ beer which is now on sale in thousands of pubs nationally. Cheers!

Rossi and Parfitt are undoubtedly one of British music’s most enduring partnerships and the same is true of the evergreen Chas & Dave. Masters of the quick quip but also with an ear for a catchy tune, and a knack for writing hits, this duo have become part of the social fabric of the nation, in much the same way as Quo themselves. With tracks like ‘Gertcha’, ‘Snooker Loopy’ and ‘Rabbit’ always raising a smile it’s easy to overlook the fact that they’ve played at Glastonbury, perform this year at Sonisphere and once opened for Zeppelin!
