Queens of the Stone Age

7.9 lol.

My friend’s seen them a few times, and he says they’re the only band he’s ever seen where you could spend the entire show focusing on any one of the musicians, and still be guaranteed a captivating performance.

…if that makes sense. I think he means that they’re all virtuoso, and they’re all intensely committed to the performance.

I’ve seen them once - Glastonbury 2011, and… well, look at the setlist:

I rarely spend loads on gigs so maybe a one-off costly one wouldn’t be a bad plan haha


#44

The last 4 songs…I’d imagine it was a fairly mellow affair!


#45

That is hell of a setlist. They do mix it up quite often too, fair play.

‘Better Living Through Chemistry’ :heart_eyes:


#46

They went full prog for Song For The Dead. It was astounding.


#47

ban request


#48

can’t remember how much i paid to see them on the last tour but they were Very Good.


#49

I saw them at Reading 2001 and again at 2005. Vastly different shows but both great. They probably have their best line up ever at the moment though.


#50

dunno man… naked nick era… with dave grohl on drums…


#51

I keep getting these!


#52

Can’t believe I wasn’t a fan at the time. Think I went to see Gruff Rhys or something instead.


#53

Good point. I’ve become a big fan of Mikey Shoes though, he fits the band so well. Like in this -


#54

That was my plan, but something told me that BIG ROCK MUSIC would be a more fitting end to the festival than FOLKSY WHIMSY.

Still love Hotel Shampoo though.


#55

I love Gruff, and for some reason had nothing but animosity for QOTSA at the time. Then Like Clockwork came out, and I heard Rated R… never looked back. Incredible band.


#56

Paid £42.50 to see them at Wembley Arena in 2013. Fantastic show - even in that terrible aircraft hangar of a venue. Would definitely shell out similar cash again.


#57

Saw the at Leeds 2010 and on the Like Clockwork tour, absolutely blew me away both times. They’re the first band that come to mind when someone asks to name a favourite. Oh and I may be the only person who thinks Era Vulgaris is dynamite


#58

Yep, it’s definitely dynamite. Scientifically proven and everything.


#59

tied between s/t and r but I’ll vote s/t to get the numbers up

I Wanna Make It Wit Chu tho :heart_eyes::heart_eyes::heart_eyes:
