Status Quo will head back out on the road in 2020 in support of their new album Backbone.
Status Quo have announced a 2020 winter UK and European tour.
They’ll play a total of 20 dates, kicking off at Hamburg’s Barclaycard Arena on November 5 and wrapping things up with a performance at Bournemouth’s International Centre on December 6.
The Quo have lined up the live dates in support of their latest album Backbone, which was released earlier this month through earMUSIC/Edel.
Tickets will go on sale from 10am local time this coming Friday (September 20).
Backbone is Status Quo’s first without Rick Parfitt, who died on December 24, 2016, with all the songs recorded at Francis Rossi’s studio in late 2018/early 2019.
Speaking about the album, Rossi said: “This new material had to be seriously good. Quo have achieved so much and meant so much to too many people for the quality to slip now.
“Also, let’s face it, things have changed and we’re an easier target than ever. Losing Rick was hard to bear but, through Richie Malone, who was inspired to pick up a guitar by him, we can not only keep going but actually pick up the pace.
“The energy that he and drummer Leon Cave bring to Quo can’t be underestimated. I wasn’t sure I had another album in me but I couldn’t be more proud of Backbone.
“I hope the fans love it, but you can’t please everyone and I’m not going to start trying to now.”
