Rockin’ All Over the World
When the band «The Spectres» started in London in 1962, no one knew that its founding members, guitarists Rick Parfitt and Francis Rossi would later have careers that spanned the globe. Under the name «Status Quo» the boys from the British Isles, always dressed in jeans and t-shirts, delivered hard boogie rock reduced to its purest form with style-defining riffs and catchy vocals. And in 2005, after 40 years, «Quo» was still the top. In Basel, they delivered all of their hits –from «Whatever You Want» to «Rockin' All Over The World».
Opening Act: Swiss dialect rock singer Sandee.
