Status Quo Cancel UK and European Backbone Tour Due To COVID-19

Wednesday, 12 August 2020 Written by Laura Johnson

Status Quo have cancelled the UK and European leg of their Backbone Tour due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The British rock veterans were due to kick off the run in Belfast on October 5 and conclude it at Bournemouth International Centre on December 6.

The only dates that haven't been pulled are three French shows, "as current French Government advice is that indoor shows can go ahead during November."

Refunds will be issued from the point of purchase. Read the band's statement below:

"It is with great reluctance that we are forced to announce the cancellation of the forty date UK and European tour that was planned for October, November and December 2020 in support of the ‘Backbone’ album release. This is in line with public health requirements and advice relating to Covid-19. Due to various commitments for next year, the band are unable to reschedule these shows for 2021. This cancellation is not what the band wanted, but they are very mindful of the wellbeing of band, audience and crew. Despite the fact that many shows have already sold out, an outright cancellation will allow our valued fans to receive a refund on tickets purchased. Quo is a band largely defined by their live performances and we cannot wait for the next time that we can perform safely, securely – and loudly! Ticket holders can obtain a refund through their original point of purchase. This cancellation announcement currently does not include three French dates, scheduled for November as current French Government advice is that indoor shows can go ahead during November. We will continue to monitor the situation and make a further announcement in due course."

Status Quo Upcoming Tour Dates are as follows

Fri November 06 2020 - STRASBOURG La Laiterie (France)
Sun November 08 2020 - PARIS Olympia (France)
Mon November 09 2020 - LYON Transbordeur (France)
