Status Quo Reveal Plans For Their Very Last Electric Tour

(Classic Rock) Status Quo have announced they'll hit the road towards the end of 2016 in what will be their last-ever electric tour. They released Aquostic (Stripped Bare) in 2014 - a fully-acoustic collection of 25 tracks - and followed it with live album Aquostic! last year, recorded at London's Roundhouse.

And while they say it's not the end of the road, the 2016 dates - which will be announced in due course - will be the last time they break out the electric guitars.

Vocalist and guitarist Francis Rossi says: "We've talked about it for some time and have decided that it's time for us to hang up the electrics - it's getting harder for us to play those shows. It's 30 years since we last said we were stopping but this is a final decision.

"It doesn't mean we won't do other things, perhaps the odd special, but we're agreed that the moment has come. There's more to come from us in the years ahead, but we won't tour the electric set ever again." Read more here.
