In 1977 British boogie rocker Status Quo released Live and it kinda documented their career which was pretty successful, so to speak. Now more then 30 years later the Frantic Four are back on stage. The tickets for their 4 shows in the UK were sold within no time and so it was obviously a good idea to record it for a live album / DVD. They decided to record the last show which took place March 17th 2013 at Wembley arena. Now Back2 SQ1 is in stores and shows that Francis Rossi and Rick Parfitt are still alive and kickin'! The guys obviously enjoy to play their old tunes, but the old magic was missing a bit. The audience get more enthusiastic with every song sung by Francis Rossi. Why they didn't play their classic Rockin' All Over The World? No idea, but Status Quo fans will find enough classic in this set. Btw, the live CD set is a recording of the shows at Hammersmith Odeon at March 15th/16th 2013, but I can't tell if it's the same set, coz I only got the DVD for reviewing. Die-hard fans will go for the box set where both live CDs and the DVD / Blu-ray is included plus a DVD-Rom with bonus stuff from the tour and it's rehearsals.
It's surely a trip down memory lane and fans of Status Quo will surely enjoy every moment!
Quid Pro Quo
(ear music - 2011)
Status Quo has come to be more than a band. These old rockers are an institution, as quintessentially British as warm ale, Marmite and cricket. This is the band's 29th studio album, a monstrous figure and a testament to the hard work of Parfitt, Rossi and co.
