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 are 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. Hitting seven venues across the country in November and December 2020, this tour sees the band’s return to UK stages, as part of a major European tour, after largely taking a break in 2019.
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.
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.”
