Queens of the Stone Age

In support of their new release, Like Clockwork, Queens of the Stone Age have announced additional North American tour dates including a stop in Toronto on September 10th at the Air Canada Centre. Tickets for the Toronto show go on sale to the public on Friday, June 21st at 10:00AM at Livenation.com and all Ticketmaster Outlets.

Tickets can also be purchased by phone at 1-855-985-5000. Tickets (incl. HST) $34.50, $49.50 & $59.50
(plus FMF and service charges).

Like Clockwork is the first QOTSA release with new label partner, Matador Records – which is part of the Beggars Group. It is the first QOTSA album since 2007’s ERA VULGARIS and, according to its founder and only identifiable constant, Josh Homme, “ …’like clockwork’ was the only thing that didn’t happen.”

After a lot of “personal ups and downs’, a “manic year”, Homme and the current iteration of the Queens–veteran Troy Van Leeuwen, Michael Shuman and Dean Fertita–along with the outgoing Joey Castillo and returning associate Dave Grohl, would decide to embrace The Beast, “ride shotgun on our emotional bandwagon…hold the horrible, lick the lunacy” and, instead of shying away from uncomfortable or painful subject matter—face it head-on.

This very special event will allow fans to get up-close and personal with one of the most iconic actors of our generation.

With an enduring devotion to acting, Pacino has become one of film and theater’s most respected players and one of the most famous and loved actors in the world. Pacino One Night Only is, undoubtedly, an exceptional occasion to catch an icon in the flesh.
