Recently described as "easily the best Quo Tribute act going" by legendary Rock Journalist & Author Mick Wall, State of Quo are one of the longest established and most popular Status Quo tribute bands in Europe. Originally formed by Rhythm Guitarist Paul Carr in the mid-90s, State of Quo have played countless gigs all over the UK, as well as several events in Europe – including a headline slot a the Crossed Guitars Music Festival in Freischepalen, Holland. Recent years have seen State of Quo performing regularly at several outdoor Festivals in the UK and touring as support to Status Quo's own Bass player, John 'Rhino' Edwards and his own band Rhino's Revenge - which included both bands sharing a stage at the 1st International Status Quo Fan Club Convention in Minehead. A typical State of Quo setlist showcases tracks from the classic 1970s albums that established Quo as one of the most popular Rock Bands of the time, alongside material from more recent albums such as 'Heavy Traffic' and 'Quid pro Quo' - plus, of course, a few of Quo's countless single hits - all played as faithfully as possible to Quo's own original recordings and live performances.

In a rare break from his day job as the bass player with rock legends Status Quo, John ‘Rhino’ Edwards has confirmed selected shows with his side band Rhino’s Revenge.
Live dates will support the release of the second Rhino’s Revenge album – 15 years after the band’s debut was released by Eagle Records.
“By any standards, that’s a long time between albums,” says Rhino, “but when you’re fortunate enough to be in a band like Quo, you don’t get too much spare time!” Having previously been a member of acts including The Climax Blues Band, Space and Dexy’s Midnight Runners, Rhino was invited to join Quo in 1987 and has been permanent in the line-up ever since.
