Status Quo - Tuesday 3rd July - Kew Gardens

You know what you are going to get from a Quo Summer ""festival". A slightly shortened version of last years set, a great night out and rain!

Somehow, only the support band - the Straits - got the the rain. Pretty heavy it was at times too. They were pretty good (it's all Dire Straits covers), but a little self indulgent in places. They may well have done Money for Nothing and Walk of Life before we arrived, but it would have been nice to have heard those.

Anyway, we got down the front for Quo - having declined the £5 a pint Honey Dew (note to brewers - insteade of having a slogan "If you like lager, try Honey Dew", how about a radical "If you like lager, sell lager FFS!"

A solid set as always with Francis on good form moaning about noise restrictions and overhead planes on a regular basis. A solid 8/10 from the boys.
