Queens Of The Stone Age will be having a Halloween show that will feature performances by The Kills, JD McPherson, and Nick Oliveri with an appearance by the Suicide Girls. In addition to a performance by the band’s former bassist, he will be reuniting with them to play a few songs with them. Oliveri spoke with NME about it saying:
“Josh [Homme] asked me to come up and do six songs with Queens, like an encore set. A reunion, but not a reunion. I’m going to get up and play some bass and sing some songs at the end of the show. It should be an interesting night.”
On the prospect of ever rejoining the band he commented:
“That’s pretty much up to Josh. It’s his band, and when he pulls the trigger on something, it’s up to him. I put myself out there a few different times in the past 10 years at Queens shows. I’d go and see them play and say, ‘Hey man, I’m here! Do you want me to sing a song?’ I stopped asking him after a while, and then he asked me! It’s pretty much just when he wants to do something, these days. It’s not up to me, is what I’m saying.
I always put myself out there, and so finally he came up with this Halloween date. First he asked for my band to open up, and I said yeah. Then he got back to me and said: ‘At the end, do you want to do some of the old songs?’ I was like, ‘Sure man! Let’s do it!’ It should be a very fun and interesting night.”
Tickets for the show are available now at Ticketmaster.
