It's a strange one. They seem to tour extensively and have quite a big marketing drive behind them, relatively speaking.
Yet they've done a CQ, playing the lowest common denominator, commercial Quo music.
Sadly goes to show that that's Quo's lasting legacy to the general pubic.
I think you will find that all tribs everywhere who play regularly and get to cover their costs are weighted towards the "pop tunes" that people know, even where those pop tunes are actually album tracks. I know at least one of the Iron Maiden tribs has tried playing full albums, and sets with less well known songs in, but they have swung back towards playing a fairly consistent setlist of "most popular" album tracks. Still bloody good, but quite predictable. At least they play some current tracks, not all the tribs do.
maff , I agree with Davy's comments. The audience for this sort of show would only want to hear the hits. In fact, it has crossed my mind that this band has been backed by 'The Quo Management' as a test of the market. The actual name - 'The Quo Experience', the current Quo setlist, intensive touring and lineup changes smacks of a trial of a future business model....
Interesting thought viv...
But it's also quite common for independent tribs who want to make a living, perhaps more in the US (Bigger market) than in the UK. At least one trib has had a shot across its bows from management for producing advertising that looked "too much like the real thing". Metallica trib, I think.
