Live Nation are delighted to announce that Wilko Johnson has been added as support on six dates of the 2014 tour by the reunited 'Frantic Four' line-up of Status Quo.
The tour will be the last ever by this line-up of Quo. Francis Rossi, Rick Parfitt, Alan Lancaster and John Coghlan will play across the UK dates [and Europe] in March / April 2014.
Wilko did not expect to still be alive this year but not only is he still here, and still playing, he will now be, as he says, 'Working with the mighty Quo'. Francis Rossi said, 'Wilko is a true British original. We're delighted to have him on the road with us - and we know the Quo audience will welcome him and his extraordinary band with open arms.' Rick Parfitt added, 'My advice to the fans is to get there early; you don't want to miss this'

The 2013 tour was truly an emotional series of concerts and these new dates provide an opportunity to relive the magic of a seminal British rock act roaring back into action. As Classic Rock wrote, 'Fuck me, dreams do come true'! These additional dates will be the final live dates from the Frantic Four; with the addition of Wilko the essential just became unmissable.
