*FACTS FROM THE ROAD

21.09.1991 - Status Quo wrote music history and without doubt another highlight in the band's career. It was the 21st of September 1991 but for the band and all their fans it was the "Rock til you drop-Day". On this day Status Quo played 4 shows in different cities in UK in less than 12 hours (exactly 11h 11min) and achieved entry into the Guiness-book of records. They played sell-out shows at Sheffield Arena, Glasgow SE&CC, Birmingham NEC and London's Wembley Arena. A total of 40,000 fans came up to see Status Quo on their record attempt and raised over 200,000 pounds for charity. All receipts were given to the Nordoff-Robbins-Music Theraphy Trust and to the Brits Performing Arts and to local charity subjects. The whole day was filmed and later published on a double-Video. It took one year to organize and manage the "one-day-UK-Tour". Seriously the most unique way to promote a forthcoming album. 

07.6.1992 - the so called "ISLAND-HOPPING"-Tour started at the Isle of Man on the "Mad Sunday" of the annual motorcycle-race TT Trophy. Status Quo played in front of a 16,000 sell-out crowd at King Georges Park of Douglas. 2 shows in St.Peter Port at the island of Guernsey followed and then 3 gigs in St.Helier on the island of Jersey. Another planned show at the Isle of Wight had to be cancelled because of financial problems of the local promoter. This show was later rescheduled on 10th November.
