Queens Of The Stone Age have added a new UK concert to their upcoming UK & Ireland tour.
The update follows the announcement that his “The End Is Nero” tour will hit the UK and Europe later this year, kicking off with an already sold-out show at the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam on November 4.
After going through Luxembourg, Paris, Frankfurt, Berlin, Düsseldorf and Antwerp, Josh Homme and company will play a series of concerts in the UK, including a concert at the O2 Arena in London on November 15.
Now, it has been announced that one more UK date has been added to the tour planned for late 2023: a concert at the International Center in Bournemouth on November 16.
The concert will take place immediately after the rock veterans in the UK capital, and two days before they head to Glasgow to perform at the OVO Hydro. Ticket pre-sale for Queen of Stone starts tomorrow (9 August) at 10:00am BST, with general sale available on Friday (11 August) at 10:00am local time here .
The announcement comes as the band prepares to kick off the US leg of their “The End Is Nero” tour tonight (August 8), with a show in Philadelphia. All the tour dates are in support of his latest album “In Times New Roman”, which came out earlier this year.
In a four-star review of the new album, NME praised the band for “using pain to fuel a rawness to their sound that has been absent since 2007’s ‘Era Vulgaris’.”
It also comes after his massive performances at Glastonbury festivals – where images of his circular pit went viral – and Mad Cool. At the latter, NME described their performance as “one of the most powerful to date” and arguably the “most exciting” of the three-day festival.
To celebrate the start of the tour tonight, the band have just unveiled the new video for “Negative Space”, created, starring and directed by Liam Lynch. Find out below.
In other Queens Of The Stone Age news, Homme recently shared his thoughts on musicians skipping their biggest hits in favor of later material.
“I understand that I’m always going to play ‘No one knows’ because I still like to play that song and that’s something that’s agreed with the community. I assume it’s part of coming to us and here you go,” he began.
“When there are bands that don’t want to play their big song or their big songs, I always think it’s a bit of s*** to do that. It’s a burden to act like a song that many people like is a strange reaction to the gift your fans have given you. It seems like a strange reaction to me.”
