Queens Of The Stone Age raise $20k for the Royal Hobart Hospital with last minute show

Queens Of The Stone Age are on the final leg of their Villains headline tour, which included the one-off charity show they put on at the Museum of Old and New Art.

Frontier Touring have announced that Queens Of The Stone Age raised a huge $20,000 from their charity show to donate to the Royal Hobart Hospital’s Paediatric Ward.

Prior to the show, iconic frontman Josh Homme announced why he chose the unique Tasmanian venue for the live, all ages concert.

I sit with [wife] Brody [Dalle]’s Mum and enjoy the wild, utterly Australian beauty. I think MONA is a perfect example of Tassie individuality, so playing there is an honour.”

The one of a kind show was by far the most intimate venue of the entire Australian tour. What makes it even more memorable is that the entire MONA performance was recorded to commemorate the extra special occasion.

Post-concert, the band dropped into the Royal Hobart Hospital Paediatrics Ward to visit some of the patients.

“The day after the show, the band made a special visit to the hospital – dropping off presents, and presenting monies to staff, and showing their support for a city close to the band’s heart.”

Josh Homme even took along his mother-in-law, mum of rocker and wife Brody Dalle-Homme.”

This year’s Australian tour has definitely been one to remember. From members of the band performing exclusive DJ sets, to having Aussie as anything pub-punk shed-rock band, The Chats, open their sets. 2018 has been a pretty great year for Queens Of The Stone Age.
