Status Quo is to be the subject of a major documentary by BBC TV. The band will perform a live concert, recorded at the Shepherds Bush Empire between 25-28 March, which will be included in the TV special. LD Pat Marks plundered his design from the band's tour at the end of last year. He will use the house Par system and the 12 Clay Paky Golden Scan HPEs the Empire possesses, plus Mac 500s, Mini-Mags, ColourMags and ETC Source Fours all supplied by LSD. Marks will also use an Avolites Sapphire for the moving lights, and put the conventionals on an Avolites Pearl. The band will play a 40-minute set in front of a live audience, which, sadly, is destined to be cut to just a two-minute insert for the documentary.
