We knew the day was coming; we’ve been teased for a week. Legendary rock outfit Queens of the Stone Age have just announced a full blown Australian and New Zealand headline tour covering the entire country. And boy oh boy, are we excited for this one.
It hasn’t even been a year since the boys headlined Byron Bay’s infamous three day festival Splendour In The Grass, and we’re still trying to recover from that. This time they will be touring their critically acclaimed album ‘Villains’ which was released in late August last year. QOTSA are notorious for breaching the walls of continuity and developing on their sound with each release and ‘Villains’ is most definitely no exception. It’s still rock music at it’s finest, but it’s different in the best way possible.
With the new album fresh at their holsters and a back catalogue that would make you weak at the knees, you really want to make sure you don’t miss this tour.
Queens of the Stone Age will play Brisbane Riverstage Tuesday 28 August. Pre Sale tickets available Frontier Touring at 2:00pm Tuesday 2 May, and general tickets will be available through Frontier Touring at 12:00pm Thursday 3 May.
