09.08.1986 - a day where Status Quo wrote rock history: Status Quo played in the morning at the Skanderburg Festival in Denmark, to return at midday to England and played at the Knebworth festival ahead of a strong 120,000 crowd. At the same festival played also Queen but later that day. After their Knebworth performance the band was flewn to Switzerland where they played at the Seepark Festival. That means that Status Quo played at 3 different countries within 24 hours.
