*FACTS FROM THE ROAD

30.06.1990 - another milestone in the bands history with the performance at the Knebworth-Festival. 120,000 people attended this festival to see many well-known bands, who came together because of the "Silver Cleef Winners Award". Alongside Status Quo such "Stars" like Cliff Richard, Robert Plant, Eric Clapton, Mark Knopfler, Elton John, Genesis, Paul McCartney and Pink Floyd performed that day. Status Quo was the second band on stage and their 60 minutes performance was a total success.
