Original Line Up Of Status Quo To Tour In 2013

We are delighted to announce that Francis Rossi, Rick Parfitt, Alan Lancaster and John Coghlan, the original band line-up, are reforming for a one-off, never to be repeated series of UK dates in March 2013.

Tickets will be on sale from this site only at 0900 GMT on Tuesday 13th November – and will go on general sale at 0900 on Friday 16th November 2012.

Status Quo manager Simon Porter said, “People have wanted this announcement to be made for years, and here it is. This is a real moment in the chequered history of Status Quo and it comes after almost 30 years of acrimony, and 10 years of law suits and court battles. Just 2 years ago the thought of the Frantic Four performing again was unthinkable. Now, 50 years on from when Francis and Alan first performed together as schoolboys, it is fitting that everything has come full circle for these unique one-off shows”.

More details, including the likely contents of the set, will be announced by the band themselves at the Classic Rock Awards on 13th November 2012. The full set f dates are:

March 2013
10th Glasgow 02 Academy
12th Manchester 02 Apollo
13th Wolverhampton Civic
15th London, Hammersmith Apollo
16th London, Hammersmith Apollo

This series of dates truly is a one off – Status Quo are now, and remain, Francis Rossi, Rick Parfitt, Andy Bown, John ‘Rhino’ Edwards and Matt Letley – so fans need to be sure that they do not miss out.

Tickets for Wolverhampton priced £38.50 + £48.50 (Best Balcony seats) will be available from 9.00am on Friday 16th November at Midland Box Office: 0870 320 7000 or online at
