*FACTS FROM THE ROAD

25.06.1999 - the band is playing at the Michael Jackson & Friends charity festival "Concert for Kosovo" in Seoul; South Korea.

27.06.1999 -  another Michael Jackson charity "Concert for Kosovo" with Status Quo; this time in Munich, Olympic stadium. The band performed the songs "Rockin all over the world"; "Whatever you want"; "Caroline" and "Don't waste my time". The show was filmed and later broadcasted in europe.

02.10.1999 - the annual UK-tour kicked off in Manchester. Support acts are local bands and the special guest Gwyn Ashton. Something strange happened during this tour. The tour programmes are sold out before the tour ended. The reason was that the programmes were printed in an insufficient number, so not everybody who attended the tour could buy a programme. Therefore the “Under the influence” tour programme is became most collectable and very worthy with highest prices on auctions. Most notable the setlist of this tour; the first shows started with “Twenty wild horses” as opener and with the song ”Shine on”, but after the first shows the setlist was changed again. Quo started with “Down Down” and “Shine on” was being dropped from the setlist.
