They’ve been Rockin’ All Over The World, and now Status Quo will be playing in the Highlands next August.

They join Runrig and Jools Holland, who are both also performing shows at the Northern Meeting Park in Inverness.

The Quo will be performing on Friday 24th August, while Runrig are on on Saturday 25th August, and Jools Holland & his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra on Sunday 26th August.

The band’s Francis Rossi said "We're really excited to be performing in Inverness.

"Nothing beats playing live to our Scottish fans and we will put on a great show to rock Inverness."

Kenny Cameron, director of CK Events, explained: "Status Quo are renowned for their professionalism in staging fantastic shows, so this is a must see concert.

"Bringing the Quo to Inverness is great for music lovers but also to the Highland economy."

Status Quo were due to appear at Rock4Life in May 2010 in the Highlands, but the charity event's organisers ended up cancelling the festival. For ticket information on next year’s show visit
