*FACTS FROM THE ROAD:

 

12.11.2013 - Abbey Road Live Here Now will be recording two shows (Hamburg and London) from the Bula Quo Tour on CD and mp3 download.

 

19.12.2013 - After 24 years as Quo's Lightning Designer (starting on the Perfect Remedy Tour 1989), it's Patrick Marks last show for the band at Newcastle Metro Arena.

 

04.05.2014 - Quo were today special guests at FC Schalke 04 annual general assembly. A total 0f over 7000 Schalke members gathered on Member's Day to celebrate the club's 110th anniversary. Quo played a 40 minutes Set and it was a kind of private gig. The band startet their show around 12.30h. The setlist: Caroline, Medley, Big Fat Mama, In The Army Now, Roll over lay Down, Down Down, Whatever You want (the club's anthem before the home team went on the pitch) and Rockin' all over the World. 

 

02.08.2014 - Press release! Status Quo have been forced to cancel a series of concerts. Guitarist Rick Parfitt was taken ill overnight (Friday - after the Graz gig) 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."

 

15.08.2014 - First time in 47 years that the band is performing a show WITHOUT Rick Parfitt. Substitute will be Freddie Edwards at the show in Clumber Park - Worksop (UK). Freddie is the son of Quos bass man and he played on Francis Rossis solo gigs. Rick Parfitt recommended that he will be on stage at Quos Show on the 23rd August in Holkham Park, Norfolk.

 

05.09.2014 - The last gig of the BULA QUO Tour was a private show at Frankfurt Messe for the german media company Promotion Profis and their costumers. Quo played a 80' minutes set and you can find some pics plus a short video of the event at https://de-de.facebook.com/promotionprofis
