Story by Cat Badra

The Queens of the Stone Age crew is currently overseas playing shows everywhere from Germany to the Netherlands, and now, the Josh Homme-fronted outfit has announced a new batch of tour dates in North America for 2018.

The desert rock band will kick off the spring leg of their North American trek starting with a show March 21 in San Diego, California, and closing out May 25 in Rochester, New York. For more information and ticket details, head to QotSA.com.

Before the spring tour, Queens of the Stone Age will wrap up their previously announced West Coast winter run, which kicks off Jan. 22 in Victoria, British Columbia, and runs through a Feb. 17 gig in Los Angeles.

Openers for both tour legs include perennial touring buddies Eagles of Death Metal, Royal Blood and Wolf Alice.

The guys of Queens of the Stone Age are touring in support of the California band’s latest studio album, “Villains,” which debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart back in August.
