HOLD on to your air guitars and get ready to rock!

The Evening Star can today reveal that Status Quo are back at the Regent in Ipswich for - not just one - but two nights later in the year as part of their huge nationwide tour.

Heavy Traffic 2002 will bring them back to Suffolk on December 12 and 13 to wow their adoring fans who will be able to strum along with such classics as Rocking All Over the World and Whatever You Want.

These rock legends are regular visitors to the Regent and always sell out the venue and the tickets are on sale right now.

The band has been around since the 60s and has had more than 50 British singles, selling more than 110 million records.

A spokeswoman from the Regent said it was great to have them back.

"They always do really well here and have lots of dedicated fans so it is wonderful to see them back in the area again," she said.

While they have sold millions of singles, as Suffolk knows, their natural habitat is the live show - they were even chosen to open the Live Aid concert back in 1984.

If ever there was a time to wear your denim with pride then this is it. Their distinctive sound and instantly recognisable songs have kept them at the top of the live rock band ladder for decades.

They have spanned the generations and still sell out whenever they visit the area. They even played a one off gig at the Railway pub, Foxhall Road, Ipswich, back in April 1999.

The sight of Parfitt and Rossi in true rock god style, standing close as they play with only the sound of a single cord between them is a sight most fans will pay good money for.

So pull out your wigs and bleach your denims because this will be a show to remember.

The band's new single will also be out later this summer. Jam Side Down will be released on August 5.

If you want to catch the boys back in action then call the Regent box office on Ipswich 433100.

Tickets cost £26.50 and go on sale today.
