23.07.2022 - Statement by Simon Porter, Quo's manager about the cancellation at Karjurock Festival, Finland:

The band is very upset to disappoint their fans, but the festival organisers failed to comply with the band’s technical rider and staging requirements, which form an integral part of the contract. As such, it was impossible for the band to perform to the standards both they and their fans would expect. In the interest of clarity and transparency the technical rider concerns power and staging necessities. It is separate from the ‘dressing room rider’ i.e. food, refreshments etc.
