• We ♥ forests. Trees are vital, beautiful and provide a home to ¾ of all plant and animal species on Earth.
  • More than a billion of us rely on the resources that forests provide, but we forget how much we rely on them. Newspapers, aspirin, furniture - the list is endless…
  • Never has it been more essential to highlight the importance of trees at home and around the world.
  • 2011 is the International Year of Forests.

"These have been really special shows for us and we have loved doing them to support The Forestry Commission's work in our wonderful forests. We hope that the thousands of fans who have came to our gigs will continue to support their local forest in the future. It has been an unbelievable experience for us to perform in these very unique settings"

"Highlight of the year so far for me , for us! We all walked off stage with huge grins. I love Delamere anyway having spent many a happy hour tramping about the place over the years ... A truly memorable gig "

'The forest shows have been amongst my personal favourites. The settings are all pretty magical and unique and on a nice summer’s evening we always got a great vibe with the crowds who were really up for a good night out. I’d go back and play those shows any time.”

Our tour of the beautiful old forests of England is a memory that will stay with us for the rest of our lives. Thank you to the Forestry Commission for keeping these enclaves of Britain from being concreted over and for letting us fill those old woodlands with the sound of our music - it truly was an honour!

“The forest shows the band and I performed at were amongst some of the favourites we've ever played in the UK. Crowds rocked, trees always rock”

"Status Quo have played all over the world and in some really stunning locations but there's something truly magical about coming home and playing to a sell-out audience in one of England's amazing ancient forests."

"I love forests because you can build tree houses in them."
