Status Quo Announce 'Quid Pro Quo' Winter Tour 2010

Live Nation is proud to announce that Britain's best-loved rockers Status Quo will undertake a 28 date UK Winter tour in 2010. Tickets are on sale now and are available from www.livenation.co.uk [tour dates over]. The 'Quid Pro Quo' tour kicks off in Southend on 9 November and draws to a close in Bradford on 19 December.

With shows in 15 countries already confirmed for 2010, Quo are gearing up for yet another hard-rocking year. In the Autumn of this year, the band will surprise many of their fans with a special record release, but there is no doubt that by the time the Winter tour starts the band will truly be firing on all cylinders.

Francis Rossi said, "We cannot wait for the UK Winter dates. We've been halfway round the world already in 2010, so it will be great to get out on stage in front of our unbelieveable home crowds. Playing in the UK is so special to us." Rick Parfitt added, "It doesn't matter how many thousands of miles we've done on the bus, by the time the tour starts in Southend we'll be ready to rock ? see you there!"

Last year, Status Quo were, for the second year running, crowned as Britain's hardest-working band in the Arena Venues category by the PRS (Performing Right Society). With over 40 years of hard-gigging behind them, Quo know better than almost anyone how to put on a show and seriously get the crowd rocking. With 'Quid Pro Quo' meaning an exchange of one item for another of value, Status Quo will trade one entrance ticket for one killer show packed full of hits and favourites from the last five decades. Support on some shows [see over] is from Joe Brown.

Acclaimed by many as Britain's greatest rock n roll band, Quo were even recognised by the Queen with OBEs this year, these Winter 2010 UK dates are not to be missed.
