QOTSA to tour UK
Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Josh Homme has promised to take risks during the band’s Download set tomorrow night.
They’re basking in the glory of new album …Like Clockwork reaching number two in the UK charts – and they’ve just confirmed a UK and Ireland tour for November.
Homme admits the inclusion of his outfit on the Donington bill might be seen as a little off the beaten track, and accepts they’re “outsiders everywhere we go.”
He continues: “I suppose we’re being asked to be something of a ginger on the palate. I think we take a risk, is what we should do. These are the days where, if you aren’t just who you are, you die.”
But he adds: “If the question is, can we throw down, bury the needle and run over you – you bet your fucking ass. We’ll do a little bit of that.”
QOTSA play the Download main stage tomorrow evening before Iron Maiden’s headline set.
