Queens Of The Stone Age will be playing a trio of UK shows for summer 2023. You can check out the dates in more detail below.

The iconic desert rockers will return to the UK for the first time since the tour supporting 2017’s acclaimed Villains. As part of a long run of summer dates calling at festivals across Europe, the band will now be playing three UK shows in June – kicking off at Halifax’s Piece Hall in Yorkshire on June 20 before stopping off at Margate’s Dreamland on the Kent coast on June 22 and heading over the Welsh border to Cardiff Castle on June 23.

Support at the shows will come from Isle Of Wight indie band Coach Party. Tickets go on general sale from 9am on Friday April 21, with an artist pre-sale available from Wednesday April 19.

Queens’ frontman Josh Homme recently appeared onstage at Wembley Stadium as part of the Foo Fighters-curated Taylor Hawkins tribute concert. He initially covered David Bowie’s “Let’s Dance” with a Nile Rodgers-led band before reforming Them Crooked Vultures for a three-song set.

News of new material from Queens Of The Stone Age is expected this year. Last year, QOTSA bassist Michael Shuman confirmed to NME that there was “new stuff coming“, while Eagles Of Death Metal’s Jesse Hughes has also hinted that a new Queens record was “done.”

Last year saw the band reissue three albums of vinyl: their 1998 self-titled debut, their 2013 record Like Clockwork and their most recent album, 2017’s Villains.
