Front Row status for Quo Show

Front Row status for Quo Show

Who: Status Quo
Where: Newcastle Entertainment Centre
When: Sunday November 5, 2000

YOU probably don't own a STATUS QUO album, unless you're like our Post sub-editor RICHARD FRENCH and manager LEO DELLA-GROTTA, who both profess to be 'co-presidents of the Australasian Denim Wearers for Quo Cult'.

Anyhow, TE's fearless head-banging leaders have come up with four Status Quo packs to give away, containing a CD and a double pass to see Quo at the Newcastle Entertainment Centre on Sunday, November 5.

The CD is the group's latest album FAMOUS IN THE LAST CENTURY which contains reworkings of some 20th century rock hits.

And just because THE POST is presenting the show, we can offer front row seats to the winner, but we want to make it a challenge.

We want you to nominate a song for Status Quo to cover on the night, and if Jim and Leo like your suggestion, you'll go in the draw to win the prize.

Who knows, maybe the band could even be persuaded to play it!

To go in the draw, mail an envelope, with your name, address, telephone number and answer on the back, to STATUS QUO GIVEAWAY, PO Box 615, Newcastle, 2300. Winners names and their suggested songs will be published in TE on Wednesday, September 20.

NEW VIDS: AN all-ages gig this Friday night at the Palais Royale will feature two live bands RAD BELIGION and CONATION playing after the launch of two new sporting videos produced in the Hunter.

The all-ages concert begins at 5pm and includes DJs and videos. Entry is $5.

DOGBITE 2000: THE line-up for DOGBITE 2000 at the Maitland Sports Ground on Saturday, October 14, has been announced. THE SCREAMING JETS will headline the MAITLAND CITY COUNCIL-funded, family-oriented arts festival, with TEST EAGLES, PRIMARY, INSURGE, LOTEL and MUZZY PEP also confirmed, as well as 'piles of local bands' yet to be announced. There have been no other Hunter dates announced for the Screaming Jets tour.
