Unplugged Status Quo unveil acoustic winter tour dates

Veteran rockers Status Quo will perform hits from their long career on a winter tour of UK venues.

The ‘Aquostic’ gigs 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 death at the end of last year shocked and saddened Quo and their fans.

Singer Francis Rossi said: “Things are not the same, nor should they be, but the show goes on because band and fans alike still love this amazing music.”

Dates already announced for June and July include Inverness, June, Norwich, Brentwood and the Royal Albert Hall in London.

The UK winter tour gigs start in Manchester on November 26, and visit Sheffield, Cardiff, Reading, Bournemouth, Wolverhampton, Glasgow, Newcastle, and London.
