That was the Quo month that was ... April 2013



2nd - Quo concert at Thebarton Theatre, Adelaide, Australia

The Quo entourage headed to South Australia on 2nd April with a show at the iconic Thebarton Theatre. The packed house were treated to a great Quo performance, although the encore was missing "Don't Waste My Time" (particularly odd as it's a crowd favourite, was played at all other Australian gigs, and was soundchecked in the afternoon before the gig).

3rd - Quo concert at Palais Theatre, Melbourne, Australia

The final gig of the Australian 2013 tour saw Quo return to familiar territory with a gig at St Kilda's Palais Theatre on 3rd April. The sold-out show marked the end of a successful Australian campaign, but it was a little disappointing that many of the front rows at the Palais had gone to Coles corporate types who sat down for the entire gig. This was also the only gig on the tour where the band sang "Down Down, Prices Are Down", albeit just the one line!

26th - Quo concert at Stadium Neza 86, Ciudad Nezahualcoyotl, Mexico

For the first time in ten years, Quo returned to Mexico to play a couple of gigs. After two false starts with cancellations of the first gig in Zapopan on the 25th and then the Guadalajara gig on the 26th, the band eventually appeared in front of a Mexican audience again in Neza on 26th April. The concert was in the massive Stadium Neza 86 and was a free show to mark the 50th anniversary of the founding of the town. A crowd of around 50000 turned out to see Quo in action and gave Quo their usual raucous reception!

undated - Closure of official Quo message board

The official Quo message board went offline on 10th April and never returned. It appears that a combination of factors led to the board's closure but board addicts can get their fix via the new "unofficial" board at http://quo.boards.net/
