With this year’s Queens Of The Stone Age tour kicking off at the end of this month, the band have just announced a surprise charity concert in Hobart taking place on the 3rd of September.
The decision to take on the extra tour date came direct from frontman Josh Homme.
The last-minute Queens Of The Stone Age concert will take place in Hobart’s Museum of Old and New Art and will be performed as a completely acoustic set.
Homme said that the decision was a result of his own personal attachment and strong sentimental love for the small Australian state.
“Playing Tasmania is special for me.”
“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 iconic alt-rockers will donate the entirety of the concert’s proceeds to charity as a message of appreciation for the band’s continued support from the country.
“As a token of our appreciation, we will donate all proceeds to the Royal Hobart Hospital Children’s Ward.”
Tickets to the exclusive concert will be available this Thursday.
Queens Of The Stone Age are currently on their huge international tour following their most recent album release, Villains, and are expected to play sold-out shows across the entire country.
