Following their headlining show at Logan Campbell Centre last year, ultimate rock royalties Queens Of The Stone Age will once again be blasting up Kiwi stages in support of their latest album 'Villains'. They will be hitting Auckland and Christchurch this August.
After their NZ performances, the band will head to Australia for shows in Brisbane, Newcastle, Sydney, Hobart, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth. Helmed by founding member Joshua Homme (guitar/vocals), with Troy Van Leeuwen (guitar), Dean Fertita (guitar/keys), Jon Theodore (drums/percussion) and Michael Shuman (bass), Queens Of The Stone Age are all geared up to play what'll be spine-tingling shows that you've never seen before!
Following hundreds of epic shows, six genre-defining albums and multiple Grammy nominations, Queens Of The Stone Age blasted forth once more from the Californian desert last August 2017 with their most recent acclaimed chart-topping album 'Villains'. Featuring fan and radio favourites 'Head Like A Haunted House', 'The Way You Used To Do' and 'The Evil Has Landed', the album owned the eighth spot on Rolling Stone's '50 Best Albums of 2017' list and coveted the no. 1 spot on Australia's ARIA Album Chart.
"Queens Of The Stone Age, you beautiful bunch of freaks. Rock 'n' roll just doesn’t get any sexier than the sounds this band lovingly wrench from their instruments and these skillful players perform with a synergy that proves they're a band of brothers who genuinely rate each other." - The Music
The Queens Of The Stone Age will be sharing stages with most loved blues maestro, C.W. Stoneking and punk-rock group, The Chats. From his rasping jungle-rock-blues, to his well-oiled locks, and his familiar, though increasingly less frequent, all white clothing ensemble, C.W. Stoneking has converted fans across the world to his unique style. Over three albums ('King Hokum', ARIA award-winning 'Jungle Blues', 'Gon' Boogaloo') and countless tours both here and abroad, C.W. has delivered his own brand of swampy rhythm and blues via his larger than life persona, incredible musicianship, and epochal performances. Emerging from Sunny Coast, Queensland is up-and-coming punk-rock trio, The Chats. Known for their viral music video 'Smoko' from their 2017 album 'Get This In Ya', the group is all set to play their first-ever Kiwi performances this August.
Currently in the midst of wowing fans on a massive USA run and eagerly prepping for their much-awaited NZ comeback, Queens Of The Stone Age is arguably one of the best rock bands on the planet.
Armed with their latest rock masterpiece, get ready to witness Queens Of the Stone Age's electrifying shows that'll tear stages apart!
