After 45 years of “rocking all over the world” – and selling 128 million records in the process – Status Quo’s Francis Rossi, 62, and Rick Parfitt, 63, are launching a new career … on the silver screen.

The veteran rockers are currently in Fiji shooting their first feature film: Bula Quo!, named after a traditional Fijian greeting.

Rossi and Parfitt will play themselves in the film which is described as “a 90-minute action caper”. It will be released next year and will include 12 of the band’s songs.

Status Quo announce new UK tour and album – and first-ever Christmas single!

September 6, 2008


Status Quo fans are in for a real treat this winter. As well as hitting the road later this month for another UK tour, Quo plan to release their first-ever Christmas record and a unique ‘greatest hits’ collection – titled Pictures: 40 Years of Hits – which will span their entire 45-year chart career.


Pictures: 40 Years of Hits will be released in the UK on November 3, 2008 in a variety of formats – including a deluxe 4CD+book ‘EarBook’, a 3CD set which includes a DVD and rare tracks, and a 2CD album. It will also be available on vinyl and in digital form, including USB.


Status Quo also plan to release ‘It’s Christmas Time’ – the band’s first-ever Christmas record … and, amazingly, their 75th UK single!


The ‘EarBook’ version of Pictures: 40 Years of Hits will comprise a lavish 4CD collection and a full-colour 120-page Art book. It will include remastered versions of all of the original radio edits of Quo’s singles in one package for the first time.


The band will also kick off a UK winter tour in Newcastle on Saturday, September 27. Described as “a Quo tour like none before”, the show is said to feature a new one-off set list packed with hits to mark the occasion – as well as state-of-the-art stage backdrops designed to evoke classic Quo moments from the past 45 years.


Tickets for the Pictures: 40 Years of Hits tour are on sale from 0844 576 5483 or
