STATUS Quo fans were rockin' all over Palmerston Park in Dumfries on Friday evening.

The enduring rock group headlined the first musical event of its type in association with Queen of the South Football Club, entertaining the crowds with hits including Caroline, Whatever You Want and Rockin’ All Over the World.

In their 48-year history, it is estimated that Status Quo have played over 6000 live shows to a total audience in excess of 25 million people.

Palmerston underwent a transformation for the gig, with the introduction of a 16-metre orbital stage situated in the Terregles Street terracing.
The Arena car park meanwhile hosted a bar and catering village, with eight different food stands and large bar area.
And it is possible that the event arranged by Queen of the South Football Club in partnership with Dumfries and Galloway Council and Worldwide Events could see other world-famous acts attracted to the venue in the future.
