  STATUS QUO AQUOSTIC 2017 WINTER TOUR DATES ARE HERE
24th April 2017



status quo

Status Quo are to undertake a full UK Winter Tour, performing hits from across a five decade career, in their celebrated Aquostic style.

The tour will hit nine venues across Britain in November and December and tickets will be on sale very soon at this link.

These shows will be fully acoustic and feature additional musicians, including female backing vocalists.

This 2017 Winter Tour will be the second such set of dates to take place without guitarist Rick Parfitt, whose tragic death at the end of last year shocked and saddened Quo and their fans, but left the band newly motivated to perform and honour these songs to a fan base that remains equally enthused.

Francis Rossi told us:

"Things are not the same, nor should they be, but the show goes on because band and fans alike still love this amazing music."

Tour dates are:

26th November: Manchester, O2 Apollo
27th November: Sheffield, City Hall
29th November: Cardiff, St David's Hall
30th November: Reading, Hexagon
2nd December: Bournemouth, International Centre
3rd December: Wolverhampton, Civic Hall
5th December: Glasgow, Clyde Auditorium
6th December: Newcastle, City Hall
8th December: London, Eventim Apollo

*All shows are fully seated except Manchester, Reading, Wolverhampton

MONSTERS OF ROCK IN FULL FLIGHT SURE TO BECOME FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

monsters of rock

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
