Queens Of The Stone Age Have Added New Shows To Their Australian Tour

Queens of the Stone Age are hitting Aussie shores for a huge tour throughout August and September, and have announced a second Sydney and a second Melbourne show.

These will be the final additions to the band’s tour, which was announced late last month, after the first Sydney show at the Hordern Pavilion sold out.

The last time the band was in the country was just last year, where they headlined Splendour In The Grass and played a few sideshows as well.

While having already announced that their bringing Aussie blues icon C.W. Stoneking on tour with them, they have announced today that The Chats will be joining the run of shows as well, with the exception of Brisbane. Yep, that’s right – the SMOKO band.

Tickets for these shows go on sale at 12 noon on Wednesday, 9th May, with a Frontier Members pre-sale happening from 10am Tuesday, 8th May. Full dates and details below.

UPDATE: QOTSA frontman Josh Homme has released a statement about the new shows and additional support acts.

“Queens of the Stone Age are proud to be sharing the stage with premier examples of Australian artistry, individuality and personality on our upcoming tour of Australia & New Zealand. As longtime fans of CW Stoneking & brand spanking new fans of The Chats, we’ll spend as much time watching music from the side of the stage, as we will playing music from the center of it. With a musical spectrum as wide and wild as the Australian outback itself, an unforgettable night is not a mere possibility, but a goddamn certainty!”
