Status Quo Announce Final Frantic Four Tour 2014

Live Nation are delighted to announce that, due to phenomenal demand, 2014 will see another set of dates from the reunited 'Frantic Four' line-up of Status Quo.  Francis Rossi, Rick Parfitt, Alan Lancaster and John Coghlan will play across the UK dates [and Europe] in March / April 2014.  Tickets will go on sale at 0900 on 18 October 2013.  Francis Rossi said, "Playing together again after all those years was amazing.  It wasn't perfect, I guess I always strive for that, but the chemistry was there and the crowds were just incredible.  These new dates are an opportunity to kick it up a notch and to get the gang back together for one final blast".  Rick added, "We wanted one last go at this, and the setlist will see some changes.  We'll play some of the material that was aired in March, plus also some more of those early hits".
 
The initial Frantic Four reunion tour was a highlight in a career that has seen the band achieve more than anyone dreamed possible.  As Classic Rock said of the London show, "The band hit every song home just like in that other kind of dream, the one where you do everything right."   The Times said, "It sounded fantastic.  And they, like us, were clearly getting a tremendous kick out of revisiting these long-neglected songs."
 
September 2013 saw the launch of "The Frantic Four Reunion 2013", a range of live material recorded on the 2013 tour.  The Guardian reviewer at these dates hailed, "A classic British rock band - accompanied by a crowd roar most football clubs can only dream of." The cornerstone release is a six disc earBOOK that contains all of the material released across the various formats [bar the vinyl].  The Blu-ray / DVD release features the Wembley show, both formats include a single CD of Wembley audio (selected tracks).  The double CD was recorded live at Hammersmith, with audio taken from across the 2 shows.  In a nod to their classic 1976 release "Live!", a vinyl version taking the form of a double LP recorded live in Glasgow, with audio taken from both the shows, is also available.
