You may think I'm a posh girl but I'm a rocker at heart. Years ago I went to the Monsters Of Rock festival in Donington and I used to love head banging - now I'm showing my age!
My mum has an eclectic taste in music too - Maroon 5, Nickleback, Boyzone and Status Quo are some of her favourite bands. She loves going to concerts - she's young at heart.
So you can imagine how excited she was when she heard there was a new Status Quo tour and they were playing at the O2 arena.
Have you ever been to the O2 arena? The O2 is open every day from 9am until late and it is a great concert venue with a myriad of facilities. The transport links are spot on, it is located next to the North Greenwich tube and bus station which is wheelchair accessible. If you are going by car the O2 is clearly signposted and parking maps are on their website.
There are a variety of places to eat and drink in the O2 as well, including Frankie and Benny's, The Slug and Lettuce and Pizza Express, perfect for a pre-show meal and drinks after the main event.
If you want to keep up to date with all the up and coming concerts don't forget to subscribe to their newsletter for pre-sales tickets. Tickets can be bought in person at the box office or through a number of authorised dealers including Ticketmaster, Seetickets and Ticketline.
The Status Quo tour is called Quofestive - very apt don't you think and it will be a very special way to celebrate Christmas, the ultimate Christmas party some may say. Some facts about Status Quo - did you know that they have had more hit singles than any other band and that they have had more hit albums that The Beatles? With over 118 million units of their music sold they are one of the world's biggest bands. Five consecutive singles from their recent album "Quid Pro Quo" have been placed on the Radio 2 playlist. Not bad going for a band that has been together over 48 years! With classic hits like "Rockin All Over The World", "Whatever You Want" and "We're In The Army Now", they have a place in the heart of rockers the world over or should I say all over the world...
I think I may treat my mum as an early Christmas present to some of the best tickets available. Who knows with Christmas around the corner she may buy me those tickets for The X Factor Live. What? I can like cheesy music too, us secret rockers don't like living by the rules :-)
