Live Nation is proud to announce that Britain’s best-loved rockers Status Quo will undertake an 11 arena date UK Winter tour in 2011, stopping off at the Motorpoint Arena Sheffield on Sunday December 4.

The inaugural ‘QuoFest’ tour sees the mighty Status Quo joined on all dates by Roy Wood and Kim Wilde. This killer line-up is not to be missed and is sure to be the ultimate musical Christmas party. Tickets, priced £37.50 9booking fee may apply), go on general sale Saturday May 14, 9am.

Status Quo themselves need no introduction: more hit singles than any other band, more hit albums than The Beatles, more appearances on TOTP than any other act; the superlatives keep coming. Roy Wood is one of the UK’s most treasured songwriters; he created hits for The Move, ELO and of course Wizzard [a certain Christmas track among them]. Kim Wilde became an instant new wave phenomenon in the ’80s and was ever present in the charts with smashes like “You Came”, “You Keep Me Hangin’ On” and of course the smash “Kids In America”. Incredibly, between them this trio has released around 170 chart singles!

Status Quo’s latest studio album “Quid Pro Quo” is released 30 May 2011 exclusively through Tesco and comes bundled with a second disc the “Official Bootleg – Greatest Hits Live” that captures the power of a Quo gig.

The Status Quo “QuoFest” set will feature the first airings of some of the new material but of course the band will blast out a slew of massive hits from that amazing catalogue of classics. Add into that the legendary hit-machine Roy Wood and a host of hits from Kim Wilde and “QuoFest” represents an evening of over 3 hours of entertainment that would put a smile on even Ebeneezer Scrooge’s face.

Tickets for The Status Quo “QuoFest” at the Motorpoint Arena Sheffield on Sunday December 4, priced £27.50 (booking fee May apply), go on general sale Saturday May 14 9am. Tickets are available in person at the Arena box office, by phone on 0114 256 5656 and online at www.motorpointarena.co.uk .
