British rock legends Status Quo have announced that they will be coming to Norwich as part of their Aquostic Live tour.

Francis Rossi, Andrew Bown, John 'Rhino' Edwards, Leon Cave and Richie Malone are set to perform at The Nick Rayns LCR at the University of East Anglia on June 25.

The band, who have had four number one albums in the UK, will be rocking the city with a night of acoustic classics including Rockin' All Over The World, Whatever You Want, In The Army Now and Down Down.

The rockers, who released their second acoustic album, 'Aquostic II: That's a Fact!', last year, have also lined up dates in London, York and Inverness.

The announcement comes after the death of the band's guitarist Rick Parfitt last month. He died at the age of 68 at a hospital in Marbella after contracting a severe infection.

• Tickets cost £45 and go on sale at 9am tomorrow via the UEA wesbite.
