Status Quo: Aquostic, The Nick Rayns LCR, Norwich - 16th November 2017

Never been to this venue before because not very good in standing in crowds of people, but because I absolutely love QUO had to come and see them. Well I was pleasantly surprised because it was small and friendly so made my night as didnt feel enclosed at all. Will visit again.... thank you.

Probably the very definition of a stadium rock band with a well-earned reputation for being one of the most hard working band in showbiz, Status Quo have been championing blue denim and Fender Telecasters for the past 50 years!

The Quo was formed in 1962 by school friends Francis Rossi, Alan Lancaster, Alan Key and Jess Jaworskie although they were originally called The Scorpions. A year later and Key was replaced by John Coghlan. The change in line up accompanied a change in name, with the band now being known as The Spectres. Whilst performing under this name they succeeded in signing a five album deal with Piccadilly Records.

In 1967 the band were joined by Rick Parfitt and Roy Lynes. The year also saw a quick succession of rapid name changes, firstly changing their name to Traffic although this was to be short lived, quickly changing to Traffic Jam and then to The Status Quo. The name was finally shortened to Status Quo in 1969.

In 1973 they released their album Hello! which topped the British UK charts. The following year they released their classical single Down Down which shot straight to number one and they’ve enjoyed ever greater success ever since.

Today the band consists of Francis Rossi, Andrew Brown, John “Rhino” Edwards and Leon Cave. They can claim an outstanding career having put out an outstanding 43 albums, comprised of 27 studio albums, 11 compilations and 5 live albums. They can also boast 106 appearances on Top Of The Pops and have amassed a total of 415 weeks in the British singles chart.

Perhaps their defining moment came in 1985 at Live Aid were they opened the historic convert with Rocking All Over The World, which set the stage perfectly for a whole host of iconic performances that followed them.

Veteran rockers Status Quo have gone acoustic! See them play at The Nick Rayns LCR at Norwich on Sunday 25th of June, 2017.
