IS THERE ANYBODY OUT THERE THAT WANTS TO ROCK?

The official Status Quo Fan Club (From The Makers Of... (FTMO)) have announced their second ever International Status Quo Fan Club Convention which is due to take place back where it all started for the band, Butlins in Minehead, between Friday 13th and Monday 16th October 2017.

It was in 1965 that Quo stalwarts Francis Rossi and Rick Parfitt first met at Butlins in Minehead with Rossi inviting Parfitt to join the band shortly after, so where better to celebrate Quo's longevity than with a Quo weekend at Butlins!

The weekend will feature live music from ex-Quo drummer John Coghlan and his band with long time friend of the band, Jackie Lynton (who famously introduced them on Quo's 'Live!' album) also scheduled to appear.

A number of tribute bands have been lined up to provide entertainment including Scotland's own Quo tribute band Backwater along with Quo-Incidence and Quo No!, along with Sweden's Sound Of Status plus special appearances by ZZ Top tribute act, The ZZ Tops, Glam Rock and 1970s tribute band Glamdads and a performance from hard rockers Predatur.

All the events will be compered by renowned music journalist and author Mick Wall and there will be more bands and surprises confirmed in the run up to the actual event.

A general admission weekend ticket is available now, priced at £75 for adults and £5 for children, and current members of the fan club will also receive a £15 voucher to spend on merchandise at the convention.

All tickets are on sale now and can be bought exclusively from the Butlins website along with onsite accommodation. Please note that tickets are not available without accommodation and the price of accommodation is per unit and not per person.
