New R.A.H. Date Due To Huge Demand!

Live Nation is proud to announce that due to huge public demand Britain’s best-loved rockers Status Quo have added an extra show at the Royal Albert Hall to their truly special ‘Aquostic Live 2015’ UK tour in April 2015. Tickets for this prestigious show are on-sale from 9am on Friday 13th February priced at £65 / £62.50 / £55.00 / £48.50 / £40.00 / £36.00adv. The rest of the tour is already on sale, the last remaining tickets are available from www.livenation.co.uk

Tickets are flying out of the door for this tour which sees Francis Rossi, Rick Parfitt, Andrew Bown, John ‘Rhino’ Edwards and Leon Cave building on the incredible success enjoyed by the ‘Aquostic (Stripped Bare)’ album itself which was a Top 5 hit, giving the band their highest chart placing for 18 years. This is the show that wowed the listeners of BBC Radio 2, plus those lucky enough to be in the intimate surroundings of Roundhouse in October - and indeed the 8,000 fans who saw the show at the Schleyerhalle arena in Stuttgart. The band will release that first ever performance in London as ‘Aquostic! Live At The Roundhouse’ on 13th April 2015 on 2CD, Vinyl, DVD and Blu-ray formats. Also, BBC4 will broadcast a one-hour special based on that Roundhouse show. ‘Status Quo Live & Acoustic’ airs on February 20th at 10pm.

After 50 years at the top of their game as one of the world’s premiere hard rock acts, Quo have leapt out of their comfort zone, this tour will be fully acoustic and will feature female backing vocalists, additional musicians and even a string section; a totally new Quo live experience! Classic Rock said of the live show that “It was triumphant”, adding of the new approach, “It works. Brilliantly. Quo acoustic? It’s no gimmick”. The Times said, “It’s time to… reclaim them as one of Britain’s great bands”. The Sun said simply that the album, “Helps confirm their national treasure status”.

Support on all dates will come from Terry & Gerry, the Birmingham-based cult skiffle cow-punk band. They have reformed in honour of their biggest fan, the late John Peel, to perform on both this tour and some headline dates of their own.
