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.

Waiting for Godot

“What are we doing here, that is the question,” says Vladimir as he and Estragon await their rendezvous with the mysterious Godot.

Taking Shakespeare

An aging and disenchanted professor whose career is on the wane agrees to tutor the university president’s son, Murph, who is floundering in his freshman English course and in his life.

The Thrill
