Queens Of The Stone Age’s hugely anticipated Australian tour kicks off in two weeks – the final stop on the band’s Villains World Tour, following 13 months of epic shows worldwide.

Joshua Homme, Troy Van Leeuwen, Dean Fertita, Jon Theodore and Michael Shuman are no strangers to Australia. As Homme attested on their previous visit: “Everybody who knows me knows that Australia is my home away from home”.

In July 2017, Queens of the Stone Age launched the Villains World Tour right here, including a special show in the tropics of Darwin, NT. Now, it’s Tasmania’s turn.

In addition to the band’s already announced dates, Frontier Touring is thrilled to announce an exclusive, intimate one-off performance in Hobart: Queens Of The Stone Age will perform a full acoustic show at Nolan Gallery, Mona (Museum of Old and New Art) on Monday 3 September.

“Playing Tasmania is special for me. I sit with Brody’s Mum & enjoy the wild, utterly Australian beauty. I think Mona is a perfect example of Tassie individuality, so playing there is an honour. As a token of our appreciation, we will donate all proceeds to the Royal Hobart Hospital Children’s Ward.” – Joshua Homme

Proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the Royal Hobart Hospital Children’s Ward, to assist in buying equipment and support the hospital’s paediatric services team. Tickets for this special show go on sale this Thursday 16 August from 4pm AEST via mona.net.au.

To ensure the best experience for QOTSA fans, Frontier Touring and the band have implemented strict anti-scalping measures for this show. Tickets are limited to two per person and no physical tickets will be issued. The owner of the credit card used to purchase tickets must be a ticketholder attending the show. Ticketholders will be notified by email of entry procedure, which will involve a check-in process on the night, and all ticketholders will need to provide photo ID matching our patron list, to staff on the door.

Mona is Australia’s largest private museum founded by philanthropist, collector and gambler David Walsh. Unorthodox and risk-taking, Mona’s goal is “no more, nor less, than to ask what art is, and what makes us look and look at it with ceaseless curiosity”.

Which makes it the perfect location for a Queens Of The Stone Age show.

With all dates selling fast and two killer supports in swampy rhythm and blues master C.W. Stoneking and self-described “shed-rock” QLD punk outfit The Chats, fans are warned: this tour is not to be missed! Take it from the man himself, Josh Homme:

“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… 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 & wild as the Australian outback itself, an unforgettable night is not a mere possibility, but a goddamn certainty!”
