Status Quo19. May 2017

Britain’s best-loved rockers Status Quo premiere their wonderful performance of ‘Caroline’ from their upcoming live release “The Last Night Of The Electrics” on earMUSIC’s official YouTube channel on May 19th, 2017:


The corresponding live audio recording will be revealed as an iTunes Instant Grat track in the course of the digital pre-order as well as be available on all streaming platforms at the same date.

‘The Last Night Of The Electrics’ – due for a release on July 14th, 2017 on earMUSIC – is a sensational live set recorded at the band’s emotionally charged, barnstorming set at London’s O2 last year.  

Francis Rossi said, “This release captures Quo on incredible form, at a concert that will live long in my memory.  It was a difficult time, but we knew what we needed to do and we delivered.  This was by no means business as usual, nor should it have been, but the energy of the music, the band and the crowd coming together was palpable”.

Having been envisaged as a swansong for the band’s legendary electric set, the 2016 winter tour turned into something very different as Rick Parfitt was forced to be absent having suffered the first of a series of health issues that would tragically end his life as the year closed.  With the band having been urged by both Rick himself and the fans to carry on and keep the music blasting, they found yet another gear, and the show captured in front of a the loyal O2 crowd turned out to be very special indeed.

This fantastic concert will be released on a series of formats: 2CD, DVD, Blu-ray, Limited Edition 180g Black Triple Vinyl with side 6 etched (double gatefold), earBOOK (coffee table book including 120 pages and 2 Audio-CDs, 1 DVD & 1 Blu-ray) and Digital.
180g Coloured Triple Vinyl with side 6 etched (triple gatefold), 2CD+DVD and 2CD+Blu-ray and various bundles will be available via an exclusive direct to consumer web shop.
