Last year, the Queens of the Stone Age rocked a sold-out crowd at Red Rocks on Tuesday, October 10, 2017.
Queens of the Stone Age are an American rock band formed in 1996 in Palm Desert, California. The band's line-up includes founder Josh Homme (lead vocals, guitar, piano), Troy Van Leeuwen (guitar, lap steel, keyboard, percussion, backing vocals), Michael Shuman (bass guitar, keyboard, backing vocals), Dean Fertita (keyboards, guitar, percussion, backing vocals), and Jon Theodore.
Formed after the dissolution of Homme's previous band, Kyuss, Queens of the Stone Age developed a style of riff-oriented,
heavy rock music. Their sound has since evolved to incorporate a variety of different styles and influences,
including working with Nirvana drummer and Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, and Screaming Trees frontman Mark Lanegan who has been a steady contributor to the band.
QOTSA has gone through many line-ups over the years, with Homme being the anchor for a rotating cast of band members and contributors including greats like Mark Lanegan, Dave Grohl, Trent Reznor and Homme’s wife, Brody Dalle of the Distillers. The list of studio contributors is long, yet the band also consistently has a solid touring line up. This tour is no exception. Following the firing of long-time QOTSA drummer Joey Castillo during the recording of “…Like Clockwork,” percussionist Jon Theodore from the Mars Volta was hired. He did a phenomenal job.
