Status Quo announce December 2013 UK tour
Posted: 8th April 2013
will join Rossi, Parfitt and co for several big festive Bula Quo shows, tickets on sale now
Two '70s rock-legends will join forces for a UK tour in December, with both acts notching up over eight decades in the music business between them.
Status Quo need little introduction - since the late '60s, after variations on their group name were eschewed for just 'Status Quo' in 1969, the boogie-rockers have doggedly stuck to what they know best - straight-ahead rock 'n roll that remains timeless and a huge draw for a legion of fans. Earlier this year, the classic 1970-76 line-up of Rossi, Parfitt, Coghlan and Lancaster performed together on a sell-out tour, much of which will be assembled for a DVD release later this year.
As well as the concert-footage being assembled for future issue, the remaining regulars have been busy shooting their first feature film! "Bula Quo!" was filmed in Fiji from where the title got its name (it's a traditional Fijian greeting) and will see the light of day in cinemas during July.
After all this activity though, it'll be back to as near-normal as Quo can get with a UK tour of the same name.
Bula Quo will comprise what would, to all intents and purposes, normally be a Festive Quo-style atmosphere, with support from '70s chums 10cc. Stops confirmed so far include Liverpool on 6th December, followed by the likes of Birmingham, Cardiff, Plymouth, London and many more large venues until Newcastle on the 19th.
Tickets on sale now, priced from £38.50.
You can also catch Status Quo at Falkirk's Rock the Stadium 2013 on 23rd June and Junction 16 2013 based in Staffordshire on 9th August. 10cc fans can see their heroes at the Ludlow Arts Festival 2013 on 22nd June.
