Seven years after his dad played the Isle of Wight Festival's Big Top with Status Quo, Rick Parfitt Jnr has rocked the Big Top crowd.

A slight issue with power in the tent at the start of his set was quickly fixed and he officially opened 2022 at Seaclose Park.

The performance fulfilled what he had earlier called "a dream to play this iconic festival."

He had said on Twitter: "There will also be mixed emotions of both pride and sadness for me.. it was on this very stage that dad played his last ever gig on UK soil…rest assured dad, we will do you proud."
