McVention 2018 - The Scottish Status Quo Convention - will be held across Friday 12th and Saturday 13th October at The Classic Grand in Glasgow, with eight of Europe's finest Status Quo tribute bands on the bill.

McVention 2018 is all set to be a special one as October 12th marks what would have been Rick Parfitt's 70th birthday, and the intention is to party in a way that would make him proud.

A percentage of the proceeds of McVention 2018 will be donated to the Shona Smile Foundation - a charity who raise money for children suffering with cancer. You can check them out right here.

Rick has just reached number four in the UK album chart with his posthumous solo album, 'Over And Out', which was featured in a recent edition of MetalTalk's album review show, You Spin Me Round. You can check it out right here:

You can also read all about 'Over And Out' in Johnny Main's nine out of ten pint review right here.

Following McVention's recent venue upgrade to the Classic Grand, there are now have less than 100 tickets remaining in this MEGA 500 capacity venue with still six months to go until the event.

McVention organisers Jay Fitzpatrick and Aidan Johnson are thrilled that a guaranteed minimum £1,000 donation to the Shona Smile Foundation will happen. They hope to raise more money at the event through merchandise sales, an auction, and a raffle that will be taking place exclusively at McVention 2018.
