At Newcastle City Hall last night Status Quo celebrated more than 40 years in the business JAN STEPHENSON was there and found herself headbanging with the most ardent of fans

Status Quo strutted on the stage with a complete plan to entertain and rock their fans.

Whenever Status Quo is performing one can't sit back and as expected, from the first strains of the timeless classic Caroline, the audience were up on their feet, singing, clapping and some even head-banging.

The most entertaining things of their show is that you don't have any surprises and you are going to be treated with a great solid show.

The band know their stuff – and so they should after all the years they have been in the business.

It was clearly evident that the band thoroughly enjoyed themselves throughout and it was infectious.

A mixed bunch of young and old left the City Hall with smiles on their faces.



Status Quo Still Lacking On There Long Awaited Show..

Thu, 18 Nov 2010 11:08:00 +0000

(image) On their comeback Status Quo band members was looking different in their physical appearance but there hasn't been any change in their voice.

It seems that there is still something lacking when Status Quo made their long-awaited – and three-times postponed – return to the Regent on 16,Nov,2010.

Their fans waited for almost 2 years as the band previous winter's show was canceled thrice due to illness

That only increased the crowd’s anticipation – and unfounded rumours earlier this week that the show could be postponed only fanned the anticipation.

They are always pumped the crowd and rocks the stage, but this time they had different strategy in there mind.In the first half of show the band

During the first half of the near two-hour set the band revived several album tracks from the 70s and 80s that will have been unfamiliar to all but the diehard fans.

I’ve seen them several times, but there were tracks new to me. One of the finest was the Rick Parfitt song “For You” which showed a very different Quo to that most of us know and love.

During the second half of the set we were treated to more of the old standards that were familiar to all.

But the band doesn't look perfect with their voices aren’t as flexible or as durable as they once were.

Francis has always taken the lion’s share, in the end he was fumbling with his voice,he really needs the help of audience and rest of the band to continue more

But that is a very small niggle at the end of a great night of music – and after all the problems of last winter it was a real treat to see the boys back in town.

This was actually the first time I had seen the Status Quo at the Regent since 2006 although Ipswich has always remained a key date on all their tours – and coming back to see them after such an absence certainly helped me to appreciate just what a professional and committed act they still are.

New AD says WVU wants to keep 'status quo'

Tue, 15 Jun 2010 09:47:00 +0000

West Virginia University needs to be savvy when addressing potential conference realignment scenarios, new athletic director Oliver Luck said Monday.Luck said he would like to see the Big East continue in its current state, which includes eight members in football and 16 in basketball."I certainly think it's safe to say that we'd love to see the Status Quo continue, but like every other university, I think we need to be smart, strategic and try to figure out if X, Y and Z happened, what are our alternatives," Luck said. "We are talking to a lot of folks to make sure we do have potential opportunities should certain contingencies take place."Big 12 members Colorado and Nebraska have announced their departures for the Pac-10 and Big Ten, respectively. Administrators at Texas and Oklahoma plan to hold meetings this week to determine their conference futures.Luck said WVU's location in the East and its popularity on network television for basketball and football games makes the university an attraction for potential suitors."Obviously it's a challenging time within intercollegiate athletics given all the talk of conference realignment," Luck said. "I think our university has a tremendous opportunity."WVU President James Clements hired Luck last week and introduced him at the news conference in a building attached to WVU's football stadium that opened in Morgantown in 1980, Luck's junior season. He ranks fourth on the school's all-time passing list and led WVU to a Peach Bowl win over Florida in his final game.The 50-year-old Luck, who was president of Major League Soccer's Houston Dynamo and served as CEO of NFL Europe, will replace the retiring Ed Pastilong on July 1. Before taking the job, Luck stepped down from the WVU Board of Governors where he served for two years.[...]
