Never miss another 'Status Quo' show
QuoFestive: Status Quo + Bad Influence
Status Quo kick off their 2012 Christmas tour, QuoFestive, this December.
The band will be joined at the shows in Cardiff, Birmingham and London by the legendary Bonnie Tyler and also on all dates by a very special guest (to be announced shortly).
The QuoFestive set will feature, of course, a slew of massive hits from that amazing catalogue of classics, plus some new tracks from their latest Top Ten album 'Quid Pro Quo', which has just been awarded a BPI Silver Sales disc. Add into that the special guest and a host of hits from Bonnie Tyler and QuoFestive' represents an evening of over 3 hours of entertainment that would put a smile on even Ebeneezer Scrooge's face.
It's a Christmas cracker!

This event takes place at The Sage Gateshead, which has achieved Gold Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
Legendary three-chord maestros who were rockin' all over the world for over 35 years. With more Top Of The Pops appearances than any other band, Francis Rossi and Rick Parfitt spent in excess of 417 weeks (that's over eight accumulative years!) in the British singles charts. In 1991, the guys were awarded a Brit for their Outstanding Contribution to Music; and Rick and Francis were awarded their long-deserved OBEs in 2010. Rick sadly passed away in December 2016, while Francis continued to tour with the band, performing Quo classics in acoustic style. They now play a mix of both 'Aquostic' shows and a return to their electric plugged-in performances.

Bad Influence is described as a 'rock and blues' band and that is where they sit quite comfortably. However, this band has many musical influences and it shows in just about every song on the new CD. Val is often described as 'Bonnie Raitt gone raunchy' or 'powerful like Janis Joplin'. Richard squeezes every ounce of passion from the guitar, whilst Harry and Pete hold it very tightly together at the back. Originally formed in 1986, by Val Cowell (lead vocals and rhythm guitar), and Richard Hayes (lead and slide guitar).
