Last week, perhaps one of the most eagerly anticipated rock tours went on sale. No, not Soundgarden with Dave Grohl guesting (nice idea), not Rammstein sacrificing One Direction onstage at Download (again, nice idea) but the original Status Quo line-up of Rossi, Parfitt, Lancaster and Coghlan reforming for a one-off tour of the UK in spring 2013.
Unsurprisingly, the first shows have sold out or are still selling very quickly, to the point where the Quo have announced further shows to accommodate demand.
The tour now boasts a brand new Wembley Arena show plus extra shows in each of the original planned towns and cities. Quo's jaunt will now start earlier with three new concerts in Manchester on 6th March (12th March has sold out), Wolverhampton on the 7th (13th has sold out) and Glasgow on the 9th (10th has sold out).
First stop in March 2013 will be Glasgow on the 10th, followed by Manchester, Wolverhampton and two stops in Hammersmith on the 15th and 16th. Both Hammersmith shows on 15th and 16th March are down to the bare bones of tickets (including premiums), hence that extra Wembley date added to the end of the tour on 17th March.
We have tickets to all of the newer shows on sale right now, priced from £38.50 upwards. Wembley is £39.50. Hurry though - if you're a fan of Status Quo, you simply have to witness this.
Of course, this time of year normally means quite a lot if you're a Status Quo fan - you'll be looking forward to their annual Christmas jaunt around the UK, this year featuring support from Bonnie Tyler, Eddie and the Hotrods and Knock Out Kaine (depending on location). We still have tickets available for most December shows from £37.50 (Sheffield and Gateshead have sold out, London costs £38.50).
