Queens of the Stone Age add Wembley Arena show

They have already sold out shows at London's O2 and Edinburgh's Usher Hall.

Queens of the Stone Age have added a second London date to their forthcoming UK tour, having already sold out a show at The O2. They’ll now also take to SSE Arena Wembley on Saturday 18 November 2017.

The recently announced world tour comes in support of their seventh album Villains, due for release on the 25 August through Matador Records. The band announced four UK and Ireland shows last month, having now also sold out the Edinburgh Usher Hall.

Villains is their first release since 2013’s …Like Clockwork. The band revealed new track, The Way You Used To Do.

 

The album’s producer Mark Ronson says of his role working with Queens Of The Stone Age: “Queens are and have always been my favourite rock n roll band ever since I walked into Tower on Sunset and bought Rated R in the summer of 2000, so it was incredibly surreal to be welcomed into their secret, pirate clan—or the ‘jacuzzi’ as Josh likes to call it.

“I also knew that my super fandom alone would not keep me in the jacuzzi. There were moments during the making of the album in which I was aware I was watching my musical heroes craft something that was sure to become one of my favourite moments on any Queens album. And to have some part in that felt like being in a dream — a very heavy, dark, wonderful dream.”

The UK and Ireland tour now looks like this:

18 November – The SSE Arena Wembley, London
19 November – Manchester Arena, Manchester
21 November – The O2, London
23 November – Usher Hall, Edinburgh
24 November – 3Arena, Dublin

Tickets for the new London date go on sale at 9:00 on Thursday 13 July 2017. Grab those and remaining tickets for the originally announced dates through Ticketmaster.co.uk.
