When the original line-up of Status Quo reunited for a 9 -dates UK tour in March of this year the outpouring of approval and raw emotion from the fans was incredible. Rossi, Parfitt, Lancaster and Coghlan received a rapturous response; the band clicked straight back into their groove, the chemistry obvious, the music stunning and the volume almost overpowering.
The Frantic Four tour was a highlight in a career that has seen the band achieve more than anyone dreamed possible. As Classic Rock said of the London show, "The band hit every song home just like in that other kind of dream, the one where you do everything right."
The Times said, "It sounded fantastic. And they, like us, were clearly getting a tremendous kick out of revisiting these long-neglected songs. "
Status Quo manager Simon Porter said, "This was a real moment in the chequered history of Status Quo, after almost 30 years of acrimony, and 10 years of law suits and court battles. Just two years ago the thought of the Frantic Four performing again was unthinkable. Now, 50 years on from when Francis and Alan first performed together as schoolboys, it was fitting that everything came full circle for these shows. "These live releases are a fantastic way to relive one of the most talked about moments in this band's unparalleled career .
