Status Quo Cancel Gigs Due To Illness
12 December 2017 Music News
Further to the cancellation of the Berlin show, it is with great regret that STATUS QUO are forced to announce that both tonight and tomorrow’s show at the Jahrhunderthalle in Frankfurt and the Festspielhaus in Baden Baden are also cancelled due to Francis Rossi’s illness.
Francis has a chest infection which has left him incapacitated and unable to sing. He is currently receiving medical attention in Germany and had hoped that he would be able to recover enough to perform at these shows, but unfortunately that has not been the case.
Ticket holders should wait for a further announcement in due course.
The band are primarily known for their touring and live shows, and the cancellation of shows is always a last resort. Status Quo’s manager Simon Porter added, “We hate to have to cancel shows and hope that the fans realise that these situations are outside of our control. The band love to perform in Germany. However, Francis could not deliver the kind of performance that the band’s fans expect and deserve and that has left us with no choice”.
