Status Quo HD
This concert, filmed in July 2009 at the famed Montreux Jazz Festival, was part of the tour supporting the release of their album Pictures (released November 2008). It was truly a time worth celebrating, as the band were enjoying a 40-year anniversary and the instant success of Pictures, which charted #8 and sold over a quarter of a million copies in the UK alone.
Frying up some delicious pop riff*ge on their duel Telecasters, guitarists/vocalists Francis Rossi and Rick Parfitt led band members Andrew Bown (keyboard, guitars, vocals), John "Rhino" Edwards (bass guitar, vocals), and Matthew Letley (drums, percussion) through a set list hailed as the band's best ever.
With a career garnering no less than 18 UK Top 20 hits, the band's success was echoed via the large screens behind him, which illustrated high points in Status Quo's four-decade history.
This stunning release will kick off Eagle's Blu-ray catalogue for 2010. Previous releases include high definition performances from Marilyn Manson, Carlos Santana, Earth, Wind & Fire, Billy Idol, Eminem, and Toto, among others.
