ROCK legends Status Quo have announced they will again be rocking all over the Sheffield Motorpoint Arena - but this time with some very special friends.

And we are giving Star reader the chance to go for FREE.
We have TEN tickets to be won to see the rock spectacular, which promises to be an early Christmas party night out on Sunday, December 4.
It will be part of an 11-date UK tour by Britain’s best-loved rockers Status Quo, who in recent years have traditionally played a festive date in Sheffield.
The inaugural QuoFest tour sees them joined on all dates by Roy Wood and Kim Wilde.
Status Quo have had more hit singles than any other band and more hit albums than The Beatles - plus they had more appearances on Top Of The Pops than any other act.
The superlatives keep coming.
Roy Wood, best remembered for his big multi-coloured hair and beard, is one of the UK’s most treasured songwriters. He created hits for The Move, ELO and of course Wizzard, including one of the biggest Christmas hits of all time, I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day.
The Brummie-born 64-year-old singer-songwriter and musician has had more than 20 singles in the UK Singles Chart under various guises, with three UK number ones.
His most regularly broadcast song is the seasonal Wizzard classic. In 1995 he released a new live version as the Roy Wood Big Band, which charted at number 59.
Most recently, he formed the Roy Wood Rock & Roll Band for occasional live dates and television performances in the UK, including this appearance in Sheffield.
Kim Wilde, aged 50, became an instant new wave phenomenon in the ’80s and was ever- present in the charts with smashes like You Came and You Keep Me Hangin’ On.
Pop singer, author and television presenter, she burst onto the music scene in 1981 with the new wave classic, Kids in America - her biggest smash.
The eldest child of 1950s rocker Marty Wilde, in 1998, she branched out into an alternative career as a landscape gardener.
Between them, this QuoFest trio have released around 170 chart singles.
The tour was announced as Status Quo released their latest studio album, Quid Pro Quo - which comes bundled with a second disc, the Official Bootleg – Greatest Hits Live, that captures the power of a Quo gig.
Their QuoFest set will feature the first airings of some of the new material but the bland will also blast out a slew of massive hits from their catalogue of classics.
With greatest hits from the support guests it will be three great festive treats.
