Live Review: Queens of the Stone Age @ Jimmy Kimmel Live 7/29
Queens of the Stone Age shredded the Jimmy Kimmel Concert stage last Monday night. QOTSA reminded concertgoers that sometimes rock stars have to get gritty and in their fans’ faces to blow their minds. Front man John Homme brought his old-school leather-jacket rock to the heart of Hollywood as QOTSA rocked a six-song mini set behind the historic El Capitan Theatre. QOTSA’s set fuse perfectly with the dusty parking lot stage across from Hollywood High School luring summer-school students closer to learn about sex, drugs and Rock N Roll. With their highly anticipated performance at Lollapalooza in Chicago just around the corner, these desert boys seemed primed shake up the Midwest. Check out the full review after the jump…
The L.A. rock band melted the crowd’s faces with a screechy chord lace set of Belt Buckle Death Sentence, Little Sister and Vampires of Time and Money. The band played in front of a Gorillaz-esque cartoon show and behind a horny Homme making love to his guitar.
Queens was forced to pause so the cameras could be cued for the taping of current single My God is the Sun, which will air tonight on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
After a second interruption, QOTSA road out into the night with Sat By The Ocean and Songs for the dead.
Queens of the Stone Age’s segment aired on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last Tuesday night, with guests Johnny Knoxville and Logan Lerman. QOTSA is currently promoting their latest album Like Clockwork, which hit stores June 3rd.
