"Pictures - Live At Montreux 2009"

Eagle Rock Entertainment are proud to announce the simultaneous release on 12 October 2009 of Status Quo "Live At Montreux 2009" on Blu-ray [Cat. No. ERBRD5035], DVD [Cat No EREDV756], and Deluxe Edition DVD [Cat. No. EREDV758].

Status Quo's album "Pictures" (released in November 2008) celebrated 40 years of the band 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 and Rick Parfitt, deliver a blistering set of hits and classic tracks from across their career including no less than 18 UK Top 20 hits. This Pictures tour setlist has been hailed by many cognoscenti as the bands best ever. Huge screens behind the stage illustrated high points from Quo's career and the usually reserved Swiss crowd knew they were in for a treat. Exclusive interviews filmed backstage at Montreux with the always entertaining Rossi and Parfitt are included as bonus features on these releases.

The Deluxe Edition of the release includes the full concert and interview footage from Montreux but also boasts the extended version of the new Biography Channel documentary on 40 years of Status Quo, a single CD of highlights from the Montreux performance and a substantial booklet.

Status Quo are one of Britain's most cherished and influential bands. With the Montreux show coming hot on the heels of their barnstorming appearance at Glastonbury ? which attracted the biggest crowd for an opening act on the main stage in 20 years ? this release is live and loud and serves as a timely reminder of what the Quo legacy is built on.
