*FACTS FROM THE ROAD

20.3.2005 - Quo performed at the after-race party following the Malaysian Grand Prix on March 20th. In the lead up to the event at the Sepang International Circuit, their appearance received wide publicity in Malaysia (not least because this would be their first ever appearance in the country).

30.5.2005 - Quo played at the opening party of the new Munich soccer stadium, the Allianz Arena, on May 30th. Local Bavarian rock 'n' roll band Spider Murphy Gang kicked off the entertainment before the opening match (between 1860 Munich and 1.FC Nürnberg) was played in front of a total sell out crowd of 66000. Quo then appeared and performed a playback of "Whatever You Want" and "Rockin' All Over The World" - in the pouring rain! Every time Matt hit the drums, he was showered with water and Andy played under the relative comfort of an umbrella! A 30 minute live set (as planed) had to be cancelled by short notice because of heavy rain. The event was broadcast across Europe on the german BR3 satellite channel.
