Great to see the Club used last night for concerts - good crowd as well. Better target age  market than in other 'pop' concerts acts they had there. 

Very professional band as you would expect. 

Superb weather helped. Well done Scarlets - hopefully no damage to the pitch though! Being dry must help.

Looks to have been a massive success and a lot of very positive feedback on Facebook. Hopefully the bars made some great money.

it was a great night - I thought Quo were excellent and the two support bands were pretty good too

well done to everyone involved in setting it up, and let's hope for more events just like it

Brilliant time seeing Quo.

Francis Rossi very polished and fit to do 90 mins then an encore of close to 15 mins. Loads of energy and great to be able to see them on this last electric tour.

Hospitality was pretty full and so, it seemed was the entire South Stand.
Any offence taken on board is only a literate/cy consequence. Every attempt at humour is just that. No personal insult intended. Standards lowered for trolls.

Air Guitar in the Quinnell I hope Steve ? We were down on the pitch and great atmosphere down there too! Hope we made a profit. We need to target the over 40 market on these events or even over 50!

Good night, really enjoyed. Just hope the £4 a pint was just for Saturday and not a new price for the coming season.

dare I say it, but the crowd would have been even bigger if some posters and flyers had been put up around the town or through letter boxes

Despite my minor constructive criticism there overall it was fabulous...on the plus side , all the feedback was great, everyone had a fantastic time ...heres some feedback from an irish couple who sailed in from dublin to see the gig on saturday 


A big thank you to all in Llanelli for some of the best memories you gave myself and Karl all the way from Dublin Ireland on the visit to your town. We went to see the mighty Quo and you are all great people and so kind. A big thanks to the crew and staff of scarlet's RFC - a magnificent stadium. A special thanks to the staff & Crew of Status Quo and also for the great reception afterwards with the Band. We went home to Dublin on the ferry - buzzing afterwards. Diolch

LOVE TO HEAR THIS DDA IAWN TO EVERYONEClap

Hats off to all involved for the quo gig.

Setting, sound, atmosphere and organization all very good. Parc y Scarlets properly sold itself as a fine music venue.

Age has nothing to do with it. It's all about getting the right band in that will sell tickets.

For stadium show, pop acts, unless they are massive (prinipality/wembley) events...they don't exactly draw a crowd in. Could go way in depth about it, but an actual band will sell tickets and a good evening can be had.

I hope Nitro Circus and Status Quo have given us solid training for plenty more to follow:
Manic Street Preachers
Super Furry Animals
Biffy Clyro
Beach Boys
Feeder

All above, just top of my head, are realistic for Parc y Scarlets in my opinion and all will sell very well/sell out.
