*FACTS FROM THE ROAD

27.03.2000 - the long awaited fanclub-concert of the band took place in Londons Shepherds Bush. The band performed playback the 15 songs of the new cover album, which was to be released on 15th April. After the presentation a 50 minutes live show followed. The show was recorded and the songs "Gerdundula"; "4500 Times / Rain" were later published on the 2 single-releases... And it was the last concert of drummer Jeff Rich, who shortly announced his retirement..

19.05.2000 - Matt Letley's first ever Status Quo gig kicked off in the Ostseehalle Kiel. The german tour spanned a total of 18 shows and after 3-weeks break another 4 german dates. Special guests of the first shows were "Fair Warning", after that local bands appeared as support. Andy Bown retired from live work with the band because of personal reasons. His substitute was found in keyboard player Paul Hirsh, who had to learn the live set within shortest time to be ready for the german tour.

28.10.2000 - By way of introducing the Australian public to their presence in Australia, Quo indulged themselves in another of their one-off "more bizarre the better" publicity stunts, on Saturday 28th October prior to the start of their Australian concert tour.

Leaving the Queensland capital of Brisbane in the morning, Quo and a party of around 130 invited guests took the opulent Great Southern Pacific Express train out to the historic township of Grandchester. Upon arrival, they were to play a short live set to their guests and the townsfolk, before returning to Brisbane. In the event, a few 'outsiders' had gotten wind of the event and the band would eventually see themselves before a crowd of around 500 eager fans who waited patiently under the fierce Queensland sun for their idols.

8.9.2001 - Quo appeared shortly after the death of manager David Walker on the hugely popular Swedish bingo show "Bingolotto" on September 8th. Filmed in Göteborg, they kicked off the show with "Whatever You Want" and later played "Old Time Rock 'n' Roll" plus "Rockin' All Over The World" live in the Studio.
