Status Quo's album "Pictures" (released in November 2008) celebrated 40 years of Status Quo filling the UK charts with hit after hit. The album was an instant success, charting at No.8 and selling over a quarter of a million copies in the UK alone. In July 2009 the Pictures Live tour landed at Montreux in Switzerland as part of the world famous festival. The band, led as always by the twin Telecasters of Francis Rossi & Rick Parfitt, delivered a blistering set of hits and classic tracks from across their career including no less than 18 UK Top 20 hits. Huge screens behind the stage illustrated high points from Quo's career and the usually reserved Swiss crowd were rockin' all over the Auditorium.

The sets are basic and movement around the stage is limited. Quo has always been like that. They're highly skilled musicians, they can play blazingly fast, their voices have held up better than they have for many rock/boogie groups, but if you're looking for Queen-style theatrics or Iron Maiden's operatic drama, you won't find it here. Quo are under-rated, under-watched and under-appreciated in their domain. If that domain appeals, you can't go wrong with this. It's ok to like other music as well, diversity is good.
If you've never heard Quo before, but are willing to give it a go, start with a concert. This would be a good one.
