Today it is Bents Park where the big names flock to for concerts in South Shields.

A generation ago, however, it was the town’s Temple Park leisure centre where they appeared.

Status Quo rocked South Shields three times in four years with winter concerts in 1990, 1991 and 1993.

December 7 marks 26 years since the first of those performances.

What are your memories of that night? We would love to know and thought we would inspire you to comment by reproducing the band’s setlist below.
