THIS weekend is what many Status Quo fans have been anticipating for months, as the annual Quoday weekend takes place in Bar Habana on Saturday May 5 and Sunday May 6.

To whet the appetites of fans, there will be music and DVDs of the band showing all evening from 6pm. These are a must for all those Status Quo fans who would like to converge to show their appreciation of the popular band.

Live music on Saturday night kicks off at 8pm and comes in the form of UK based tribute band Stated Quo. They will be perfoming an acoustic set on the night, and will be followed by Quotation, who will be travelling all the way to Portlaoise from Holland. Quotation will be playing another live set on Sunday night.

Formed in the late 1960s, Status Quo recorded over 60 chart hits in the UK, more than any other rock group, with 22 of these reaching the UK Top Ten. There is no cover charge either night and all are welcome along. For more on Bar Habana’s listings, visit their Facebook page.
