Quo founder members Francis Rossie and Rick Parfitt are joined in the current line up by keyboard player Andrew Bown, bassist John 'Rhino' Edwards, and drummer Leon Cave.

Richie performed a sell out show in Cork in 2007 and speaking of his return he said, "I can’t wait to get back to Cork.   The audiences are always so great and I always have an incredible time when I’m there.

"The show feels like a great big sing-along most nights so I’m looking forward to singing along with the people of Ireland once again!”
