Queens of the Stone Age are heading out on a huge arena tour of the UK and Europe later this year, and they’ll be paying us a visit here in Manchester.

Ahead of their headlining slot on the Other Stage at this year’s Glastonbury, and a string of accompanying sold-out UK shows throughout the summer, Queens Of The Stone Age have today announced that they’re set to perform at some of the biggest arenas across Europe this autumn, and fans will soon be able to grab tickets.

The Seattle-formed US rock band – which is fronted by Joshua Homme, with Troy Van Leeuwen, Michael Shuman, Dean Fertita, and Jon Theodore – are inviting music lovers to “celebrate the end of the world” with them on their The End Is Nero tour.

They’ll be taking to the stage at the AO Arena here in Manchester for one night only this November.

London’s O2 Arena, Glasgow’s OVO Hydro Arena, and Dublin’s 3Arena are just a few of the other major arenas the five-piece band are set to entertain crowds at later this year.


The End Is Nero tour will support the band’s upcoming eighth studio album In Times New Roman…, which is set to be released on 16 June.

The lads say they’re encouraging “the obscene and the clean, the outcasts and the weirdos, and anyone and everyone in between” to all come together and celebrate the album release with them and thousands of other fans on tour as “this is where you belong”.


“Leave your judgement at the door, bring anything and everything else,” the band added.

The End Is Nero tour kicks-off at the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam on 4 November, and will see the band head to Luxembourg, France, Germany, and Belgium, all before arriving in the UK and taking to the AO Arena stage here in Manchester on 14 November.

The Chats and deep tan are both lined-up to support on all upcoming UK and Europe tour dates.
