Rock4life no more

Rock4life is cancelled. The BBC reports:

'A new music festival in the Highlands which was to feature veteran rockers Status Quo has been cancelled.

Rock4Life was due to be held on 1 May at Whiteness, near Ardersier, and raise money for the Highland Hospice.
The second day of the two-day event, at which pop acts Sugababes and McFly were due to appear, had already been cancelled because of poor ticket sales.
Highland Council confirmed they had now been told by organisers the festival would no longer be going ahead.
Rock4Life was expected to attract a crowd of about 20,000.
A spokesman for Highland Council said they had been informed the decision to call off the entire event was taken due to the "knock-on effect" from the loss of the second day, which created a cash-flow problem.'

What a shame, it's not as though it would have cost the Quo much to get here with their free bus pass travel

Maybe Medicine Music or the likes can save the day and get them to play in the back of The Star?
