Status Quo are one of the world’s biggest rock bands. They’ve sold in excess of 118 million units world-wide and in 2013 they released their 100th single. Their first smash hit, Pictures of Matchstick Men, peaked at #7 on the charts in 1968 and they haven’t stopped releasing chart toppers since. They’ve got 43 British Album Chart hit albums under their belt (27 studio albums, 11 compilations and five live albums) and have been awarded the coveted Outstanding Contribution To The British Music Industry accolade at the BRITS Awards. Throughout their career, it is estimated Quo have performed more than 6000 shows to a total audience of more than 25 million people.
With Francis Rossi (O.B.E), John ‘Rhino’ Edwards and Richie Malone on guitars, Andrew Bown on keys and Leon Cave on drums, The Last Night of the Electrics tour promises to rock audiences socks off. The tour will also be an opportunity for Quo to tip their hats to the late Rick Parfitt (O.B.E) who passed away over Christmas. Richie Malone stepped into the big musical shoes Rick left when he retired from the band in mid-2016 and will continue to be an integral part of keeping the Quo live experience tight.
