Legendary rockers Status Quo will be headlining the the Friday night of the Clumber Park music festival this year and the band is already looking forward to its first ever gig at the festival.

Lead guitarist and vocalist with “the Quo” Francis Rossi OBE says the band can’t wait to take the stage at Clumber Park; “This will be our only appearance in the East Midlands this year and we are really up for it already. Playing live is what Quo is all about and we just love being on stage in the open air. I don’t think we have ever played a National Trust gig before so it should be very special.”

After they hit number seven in the charts in 1968 with “Pictures Of Matchstick Men” the denim clad rock band have gone on to sell over 118 million records worldwide and have had 64 hit British singles - more than any other band.

Timeless classic like “Rockin All Over the World” “Whatever You Want” and the number one “Down, Down” are all expected to feature alongside tracks from the new album Bula Quo!

Neil Butkeratis from UK Events which is organising the festival says he expects Clumber Park to be rocking like never before when Quo take the stage; “Bands don’t get much bigger than this; Status Quo can boast almost 50 years in the business and we are delighted to have them here for their first ever appearance at Clumber Park. The band have an incredible following and we are looking forward to seeing them have a great time in the summer sunshine in August.”

Status Quo have had 33 hit albums in the British Album Chart including ‘Rockin’ All Over The Years’ in 1990 which sold 1.1 million attaining a triple platinum sales status with worldwide sales exceeding seven million.

The list of Status Quo achievements is endless; Opening Live Aid in 1985, receiving the Brit Award in 1991 for “Outstanding Contribution to the British Music Industry”, Performing in the presence of HM Queen Elizabeth in Berlin at the prestigious ‘Last Tattoo’ and raising thousands of pounds for charity are to name just a few.

Status Quo will make their first appearance at Clumber Park on Friday 15th August. Founder members Francis Rossi and Rick Parfitt will be joined on stage with keyboard player Andrew Brown, bassist John ‘Rhino’ Edwards and drummer Leon Cave.

A special guest appearance is also due to be announced but is being kept under wraps as are the support acts.
