Rick Parfitt / Illness

Cancellation of some August shows

Status Quo have been forced to cancel a series of concerts due to take place over the next week. Guitarist Rick Parfitt was taken ill overnight [Friday] and has been taken to hospital in Pula [Croatia] where he was detained overnight.

Therefore tonight’s show in Pula and the dates in Monte Carlo, Switzerland and Germany – up until the 10th August – have been cancelled on medical advice.

The band’s manager Simon Porter said, “The band do not cancel shows lightly, as any of our fans will tell you, but in this instance we have no option but to follow medical advice.”

The band will release more information on Rick’s condition next week.
