Queens of the Stone Age officially announce ‘The End Is Nero’ Summer 2024 Australian and New Zealand tour, the band’s first appearance in Australasia since 2018. The official announcement comes after the band excitedly teased the news via social media last week, “sending shockwaves of excitement through the Gold Coast and beyond.” – GC Mag.
The far-reaching tour, hailed by NME as “a band reaching the peak of their powers” and the Lincoln Star Journal to proclaim it “the best rock show I’ve seen in a very long time” will see the band start at Red Hill Auditorium in Perth on 10th February, ahead of shows in Adelaide, Hobart, Torquay, Melbourne, Sydney, Gold Coast and Brisbane. Queens of the Stone Age will then continue their tour in Auckland and Wellington before concluding the run in Christchurch on 3rd March.
‘The End is Nero’ tour is in support of their acclaimed eighth studio album, ‘In Times New Roman…’ which debuted at #2 on the ARIA charts and which NME Australia described as “their darkest, knottiest material to date.’ The End Is Nero tour is an invitation from Joshua Homme, Troy Van Leeuwen, Michael Shuman, Dean Fertita and Jon Theodore to come celebrate the end of the world, which we hear is “in a month or two.” They would like to encourage the obscene and the clean, the outcasts and the weirdos, and anyone and everyone in between to attend, this is where you belong. Leave your judgment at the door, bring anything and everything else.
For all shows, Queens of the Stone Age fan presale begins 11am (local) Wednesday 25 October.
My Live Nation members can secure tickets during the My Live Nation presale beginning 11am (local) Wednesday 25 October for the Mona Lawns, Hobart show and for all other shows, beginning 12pm (local) Friday 27 October.
One NZ customers can be among the first to secure tickets during a 48 hour presale for all New Zealand shows, starting 11am (local) Wednesday 25 October. Head to one.nz/music
