Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC) is delighted to announce that Status Quo will return to the GE Oil & Gas Arena on Wednesday 2nd December 2015!
The band, who have played the Venue 11 times over the years, will return this December as part of their Accept No Substitute UK Winter Tour in November/December this year.
This tour will see the band returning to their fully electric set up after the huge success of the ‘Aquostic (Stripped Bare)’ and ‘Aquostic! Live at the Roundhouse’ albums (the former just passed 150K sales) and Tour.
Francis Rossi, Rick Parfitt, Andy Bown, John ‘Rhino’ Edwards and Leon Cave will plug back in and bring their thunderous electric live show back to the nation’s venues. Packed with hits, both new and old, taken from that unbelievable back catalogue, this is a series of dates not to be missed; not least as support at all the December shows will come from Wilko Johnson.
Francis Rossi said, “We’ve had such a blast with the ‘Aquostic’ style, but for this tour we are going back to the sound that defines us. I read in the paper that we were breaking up; but we’re not finished yet I can tell you!” Rick Parfitt added, “I guess the name of the tour speaks for itself, but this is full-throttle no-nonsense Status Quo”.
Graeme Cumming, Interim Managing Director at AECC, commented: “We look forward to welcoming Status Quo to the Venue for the twelfth time. There are many fans in the area who will be excited by this news; having not seen them in the City since December 2010. This announcement adds further diversity to our winter line-up which also includes performances from The Proclaimers, Simply Red, Andre Rieu and Texas.”
