Following a sell out concert this summer at Scarborough Open Air Theatre, Scarborough Borough Council in association with National Holidays is delighted to announce that the truly legendary Status Quo, one of the world’s greatest ever rock bands, will perform at the venue again on 12 July 2014.
Francis Rossi, Rick Parfitt, Andrew Bown, John “Rhino” Edwards and new drummer Leon Cave will take to the stage at Europe’s largest open air theatre on Saturday 12 July 2014. The band will once again deliver a hard-hitting set, packed with hits plus some new material from this year’s Top Ten album ‘Bula Quo!’, all underscored with the trademark Quo power and sound.
This is a band like no other. Status Quo’s total worldwide record sales exceed 118 million units. The band this year released their 100th single, another airplay smash, which continued the band’s run of success which has seen them spend in excess of seven and a half years (415 weeks) in the British Singles Chart. Along the way they have picked up Platinum Discs, Brit Awards, OBEs, made over a hundred appearances on Top Of The Pops, and set any number of records that will never be equalled. Don’t miss them in Scarborough.
Supporting Status Quo will be Uriah Heep. Over the years, Uriah Heep has sold in excess of 40 million records and has had five US Top 40 albums. The band has played concerts in over 54 countries and is a technically brilliant heavy rock band, with a catalogue of 23 studio albums and a new album due for release in 2014.
Band members Mick Box, Phil Lanzon, Bernie Shaw, Russell Gilbrook and Davey Rimmer will rock Scarborough with a set list guaranteed to feature monster hits, Easy Livin', July Morning and Lady in Black, as well as Free 'n Easy, Sunrise, Nail On The Head and recent material too.
All this is guaranteed to fire up the audience long before the headliners Status Quo, take to the stage.
