Status Quo Complete Bank Holiday Concert Series @ Live in Somerset Friday 23rd August 2024

The fourth and final announcement for the 2024 Live in Somerset bank holiday concert series has been made, and it is none other than British rock legends Status Quo!

Status Quo are a five-piece band who have been entertaining the masses for over 60 years now since their formation in 1962, accumulating achievement after achievement during their astounding career.

The group consisting of Francis Rossi (lead guitar and vocals), Andy Bown (keyboard), John Edwards (bass guitar), Leon Cave (drums) and Richie Malone (rhythm guitar), will be taking to the stage in Vivary Park, Taunton on bank holiday Friday 23rd of August 2024.

The band have amassed over 60 UK chart hits – more than any other rock band! They’re best known for songs such as ‘Whatever You Want’, ‘In The Army Now’, ‘Down Down’ and ‘Rockin’ All Over The World’; the single most famous for opening Live Aid at Wembley Stadium in 1985.

Overall, Status Quo have released over 100 singles and 33 albums, their latest ‘Backbone’ being released in 2019. This has led to them spending more than seven and a half years in the British Singles Chart – the 11th highest ever! Not to mention the 48 albums that reached the Top 75 in the British Albums Chart; more than any other band bar The Rolling Stones.

Status Quo will be joined by special guests at Live in Somerset 2024, making it a show not to be missed.

Claire Kidger, Director of LCC Live said;

 “We’re delighted to be able to welcome back Status Quo after their sold out show at Live in Somerset back in 2016! They’re great performers with such an iconic catalogue of great hit songs, everyone will be sure to dance and sing along. We can’t wait!”

Tickets for Status Quo are on sale now from, as well as in person from Taunton’s Visitor Centre on Fore Street, Taunton.
