Status Quo 2020 Tour Cancellation Statement below :
“It is with great reluctance that we are forced to announce the cancellation of the forty date UK and European tour that was planned for October, November and December 2020 in support of the ‘Backbone’ album release. This is in line with public health requirements and advice relating to Covid-19. Due to various commitments for next year, the band are unable to reschedule these shows for 2021. This cancellation is not what the band wanted, but they are very mindful of the wellbeing of band, audience and crew. Despite the fact that many shows have already sold out, an outright cancellation will allow our valued fans to receive a refund on tickets purchased. Quo is a band largely defined by their live performances and we cannot wait for the next time that we can perform safely, securely – and loudly!”
Plus special guests - RICH RAGANY & THE DIGRESSIONS
AEG Presents are delighted to announce that Britain’s best-loved rockers Status Quo are following on from their triumphant Hyde Park ‘Radio 2 Live’ show and coming back to reclaim their position on the live circuit – with the ‘Backbone’ UK Winter Tour in 2020. Quo will be performing hits from across their five decade career, and of course the latest hit album ‘Backbone’ which has just charted at no.6 in the UK. It is the highest charting album of new material for 33 years since ‘In the Army Now’ in 1986.
If the ‘Backbone’ tour represents the return of the quintessential live rock act, then the ‘Backbone’ album itself marks something of a new dawn. These live dates will feature a brand new set including all the classics but also songs from the first album not to feature the late great Rick Parfitt; some being played live for the first time ever, ‘Backbone’ demonstrates a refocusing and a sharpening of the creative edge. Francis Rossi said, “The pressure was on: this set of new songs had to be strong enough to take their place in that amazing catalogue of Quo classics. With songs like ‘Liberty Lane’ and ‘Backbone’ already road tested at massive shows in Hyde Park and on the Lynryd Skynryd tour, there’s no doubt that the new material stands up! We can’t wait to get back on the road in the UK.”
The album was described by Classic Rock as “a strong, upbeat Quo record, which adds to their legacy” and by Powerplay as “an essential addition to any right-thinking Quo fan’s collection”. Francis Rossi said, “We’ve been away from the UK live circuit for a little while and we’ve missed it, and we’ve missed the fans. The ‘Backbone’ album got such a great reception, people really understand what we are trying to do and the fans have really supported it. We can’t wait to get out there in 2020 on a proper Status Quo tour and play all the classics, plus some of these new songs for the first time.”
