WILMINGTON — Seattle, Washington’s American rock darlings Queens of the Stone Age are headed to Live Oak Bank Pavilion this spring.
Led by frontman Josh Homme, and consisting of Troy Van Leeuwen, Michael Shuman, Dean Fertita and Jon Theodore, the band will stop in Wilmington on May 7 as part of its The End is Nero Tour. Tickets will open to the public this week.
The band is touring in support of the 2023 release, “In Times New Roman…” — nominated as Best Rock Album for the 2024 Grammy Awards. “Emotion Sickness” also has been nominated as Best Rock Song. The band has scored seven Grammy nods during its career.
“In Times New Roman…” is the eighth album released by the outfit since 1998’s self-titled debut. The band has consisted of a rotating group of members, including the likes of Nirvana and Foo Fighters’ musician Dave Grohl joining for 2002’s “Songs for the Deaf.” Frontman Homme has been the constant throughout the band’s evolution.
Special guests Royal Blood will perform at Wilmington’s show as well. Tickets go on sale here on Friday, Feb. 2, 10 a.m.
