The audience may have been select for the Newcastle gig but I gather there was an American Heavy Metal band member in too. Brent Hinds from Matsodon. He's a big Quo fan. Maybe their billing at Alcatraz isn't so stranger after all. Do you know this band? I know you like the heavier side of rock.
Yeah I like Mastadon. Or at least used to. Must admit I haven’t really listened to their last couple of albums much. Doesn’t surprise me as they like traditional rock music. I could imagine them covering a classic Quo song. Maybe Don’t think it matters or even Roll over. They covered Lizzys Emerald years ago. Think as a bonus track on the concept album based on Moby Dick. I was looking at that bill. It’s over 3 to 4 days I think. I see Mr Big are on it to. But yes it seems strange it’s hard rock and metal. Fuzzy could play on the bill, maybe Ross the Boss. Couple of others and you have a stage done. But it does seem odd billing. Especially now Big Fat Mamma is gibe. But Status Quo have that cross over appeal where they are good fun. So they’ll probably get away with it. Especially if Mr Big are on before them. With their largely melodic rock and ballardry.

Thanks for the review PF. Made me feel sad - my decision to stop following CQ in 2014 was the right one for me. For me, Quo were amazing in the studio and onstage for the 70's. Then it was live only that was great. I continued to have a great time for the vast majority of the last 3o years (the DS tour was a low point though!).
But now there's nothing great. Live, they are relegated to simply being good. And yeah, it's not loud n heavy enough to really get off on. My ITAN ticket was about £7. Can't believe they are charging nearly £60 now, ridiculous.
I do think those wanting the band to stop may be disappointed. If Francis has good health, I wouldn't put another 10 years past them! In fairness to CQ, I also think they can justify carrying on if they want. Between them, the current band members have around 130 years service in the band!!!!!
