First Support - Revised Time: 7.00pm
Rock legends Status Quo have announced that they will perform a major outdoor concert at Falkirk Football Club next summer, the first time in the group’s 45 year career.
The band, who holds the record for more hit singles than any other band, has had more hit albums than The Beatles, and made more appearances on TOTP than any other act, will make the journey to play to thousands of fans at Falkirk Stadium on Sunday 23rd June.
The five-piece which has sold over 118 million records and had 22 top ten hits including Caroline, Whatever You Want and In The Army Now will perform rock classics including ‘Rockin all over the World’ as well as performances from its latest – and twenty ninth - studio album ‘Quid Pro Quo’.
Band member Francis Rossi said:
"We’re really excited to be performing in Falkirk, the first time in our career. Nothing beats playing live to our Scottish fans and we will put on a great show to Rock the Stadium on Sunday 23rd June."
Andy Thomson, director of Falkirk FC Events said:
"We’re thrilled to be welcoming rock legends Status Quo to Falkirk as part of Rock the Stadium. The band is renowned for its professionalism in staging fantastic shows, so this is a must see concert."
2012 marks the 40th anniversary of the release of 10cc’s first single Donna, which reached No.2 in the UK charts and kick-started a remarkable career that has seen the band sell in excess of 30 million albums around the world.
Naturally 10cc are celebrating their 40th year in style and far from resting on their laurels they will be spending it breaking new ground.
The band are set to Rock the Stadium with hits such as Dreadlock Holiday, I’m Not In Love, Wall Street Shuffle, Things We Do For Love and Rubber Bullets.
