Queens Of The Stone Age will reign over Kiwi stages this August

Blasting forth the second time from the Californian desert are iconic rock superstars Queens Of The Stone Age, bringing their much-awaited 'Villains World Tour' to Auckland's Spark Arena and Christchurch's Horncastle Arena this August.

Following their Kiwi performances, the band will be playing their Australian tour which will kick off in Brisbane before heading to Newcastle, Sydney, Hobart, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.

Currently in the midst of wowing fans on their massive USA run, Queens Of The Stone Age will continue tearing up stages in celebration of their most recently 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', 'Villains' claimed the eighth spot on Rolling Stone's '50 Best Albums of 2017' list and debuted at no. 1 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

Following hundreds of epic shows, six genre-defining albums and multiple Grammy nominations, Queens Of The Stone Age is arguably one of the best rock bands on the planet. 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 will be sharing stages with two of Australia's most-loved artists C.W. Stoneking and The Chats.

C.W. Stoneking has converted fans to his unique style as he continuously captivate hearts with his rasping jungle-rock-blues whilst dressed in his familiar all white clothing ensemble. Over three albums ('King Hokum', ARIA Award-winning 'Jungle Blues' and '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. Meanwhile, Sunshine Coast punk-rock trio The Chats are now all set to make their Kiwi debut following their 2017 viral video 'Smoko'.

Don't dare miss Queens Of The Stone Age performing their latest rock masterpiece, fused with their timeless exhilarating sound, live this August!
