The rockers will shake up the ‘status quo’ at Dubai Opera…

English rock band Status Quo are heading to town on October 27 to perform a gig at Dubai Opera.

The band’s tour, Last Night of the Electrics, kicked off in 2016 and features Francis Rossi, Andy Bown, John “Rhino” Edwards, Leon Cave and Richie Malone.

Sadly, guitarist and founding member Rick Parfitt passed away in December following complications from a shoulder injury. The band has decided to extend its European tour to honour his memory – which is why they’re now coming to the UAE.

Throughout Status Quo’s six-decade career, the band has enjoyed more than 500 weeks in the album charts, and sold more than 118 million records worldwide.

“Status Quo are the ultimate live performers – and in a space as intimate as Dubai Opera, I expect their show will quite literally raise the roof this October,” Dubai Opera chief executive Jasper Hope said.

“For anyone who’s been waiting for us to turn up the volume, this one’s for you. Rock on Dubai.

If you want to catch these legends as they carry on Rockin’ All Over The World, tickets go on sale from 2pm today.
