Scottish Championship side Queen of the South say a gig held at their Palmerston Park ground on Friday night is likely to be the "first of many".

The Doonhamers hosted Status Quo, Big Country and Reef in the first ever live concert at the Dumfries ground.

Organisers said the event had been a success with a crowd of thousands turning out.

Chairman Billy Hewitson said the event had shown it had the "perfect outdoor facility" for concerts in the town.

Commercial manager Victoria Thomson added: "It's been months of hard work, but it was worth the effort.

"It proved to be a fantastic night and lived up to be more than we expected it to be.

"For our first venture into the music business, we are delighted with the way it went."
