Joshua Homme & Dean Fertita of Queens of The Stone Age perform on ‘Later… with Jools Holland’

Last night saw Josh Homme & Dean Fertita strip back the stage set-up and unplug the pedalboard for a scintilating version of the album closer ‘Villains of Circumstance’ on BBC Two’s Later… with Jools Holland.

The pair were joined by a string sextet who added sweeps of emotion to an already sentimentally charged track. Dean providing the key accompaniment to Josh’s unmatched crooning.

You will be able to see the second part of the ‘Later… with Jools Holland’ show this Saturday at 22:30 BST

Queens of The Stone Age recommence their US tour this week, and will be touring in Europe come November.

Algiers to support Depeche Mode on European stadia tour

Up until now the tastiest link between Matador Records and Depeche Mode has been Anthony Anzaldo’s left arm.

In a bid to out-do this, Algiers have announced they will support Depeche Mode on their upcoming European tour, playing some pretty sizeable venues along the way – including the Stade De France, Stadio Olimpico and the San Siro stadium in Milan – which we’re willing to bet hasn’t seen a performance as aggressive since Gennaro Gattuso donned the famous black & red.

Tour dates:

June 11th – HDI Arena – Hannover, DE
June 12th – HDI Arena – Hannover, DE
June 18th – Letzigrund Stadion – Zurich, CH
June 20th – Commerzbank-Arena – Frankfurt, DE
June 22nd – Olympiastadion – Berlin, DE
June 25th – Stadio Olimpico – Rome, IT
June 27th – San Siro – Milan, IT
June 29th – Stadio Renato Dall’ara – Bologna, IT
July 1st – Stade De France – Paris, FR
July 4th – Veltins-Arena – Gelsenkirchen, DE

Tickets available on the official Depeche Mode site
