Status Quo

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.”

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.”

These 2020 dates are a chance for Britain’s greatest rock band and their loyal army of fans to reconnect. With ‘Backbone’, Status Quo have propelled themselves back into the charts, back to the top of the rock tree and now back onto the stage…
