Queens of the Stone Age are one of those bands I would go on a road trip to see, so I’m pretty pleased to see that they just announced a show up in the Twin Cities (ideally, they’d be here in Rochester, but I’ll take them being in Minnesota as a win).

They’ll be live in concert at the Roy Wilkins Auditorium in St. Paul on Saturday, October 14th.

Their special guest is another great band that I’ve had the pleasure of seeing live – Royal Blood. I saw them open for the Foo Fighters a couple years ago and was blown away by how loud and badass their sound is despite consisting of only two members. Just drums, vocals, and a guitar. I had no idea until I saw them perform live. Needless to say, this is a pretty great lineup.

Tickets go on sale next Thursday, June 22nd at 10AM.

In the meantime, here's one of my favorite QotSA tracks to get you psyched for the show:
