LEGENDARY rockers Status Quo are to perform in Belfast and Dublin next year.

The band yesterday announced they will bring their 'Out Out Quoing' tour to the Waterfront Hall on February 27. They are also set to take to the stage of the Olympia Theatre in Dublin on February 28.

In a post on Twitter, they said: "Legendary rockers Status Quo are coming back with a brand-new tour for 2022".

The band's last gig was at Hyde Park in London in September 2019 in front of 65,000 fans, but the rest of their UK tour was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Singer Francis Rossi said: "We cannot wait to play again. Every gig is special for Quo but it's been too long since we got to play anywhere. Going out is something that we all took for granted.

"Not any more.

"Going out, going out properly - 'going out out', as some would have it - became a bit of dream but now that dream can come true.

"The name of the tour is a bit of humour, but a celebration too. However, I'd urge fans not to overthink it and just prepare for all the hits and some serious live music energy."

Tickets for the band's gigs are available from Ticketmaster.
