Queens of the Stone have announced they will add one more very unique stop to their international arena tour and their performance will be fully acoustic. Josh Homme and the boys will make their first appearance at the annual Bridge School Benefit at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, CA on October 26 & 27. QOTSA will join the likes of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Elvis Costello, and The Killers at the legendary charity event 35 miles South of San Francisco.
QOTSA have become one of the legendary living rock bands and their legend has continued to grow. Their new album …Like Clockwork reached #1 on the U.S. charts and they are headlining a sold-out arena tour at venues such New Yorks Barclay’s Center. But their Bridge School performance should be something truly unique for fans, the ability to see a fully acoustic QOTSA set. Josh and fellow band allies Troy Van Leeuwen, Dean Fertita, Michael Shuman and Jon Theodore, are known for their uniquely distorted desert rock sound, but for a night they will be stripped bare.
For …Like Clockwork Josh brought in world class collaborators and friends Mark Lanegan Trent Reznor, Elton John, and Jake Shears while also bringing back former prominent QOTSA member Nick Oliveri. QOTSA have reached a new plateau in the rock world.
Here is the full Bridge School lineup as of today:
- Queens of the Stone Age
- My Morning Jacket
- The Killers (Saturday only)
- Elvis Costello
- Diana Krall
- Jenny Lewis
Tickets go on sale September 13 and can be purchased on Live Nation.
