Live Review: Queens of the Stone Age @ The O2 Arena, London (21/11/17)
Share This Article:
When a mundane Tuesday in November became a stoner rock Saturday night paradise, myself and the rest of the crowd at the O2 knew we were in for the gig of our lives. Twenty minutes passed after support act Broncho left the stage, the lights went down once again revealing a curtain veiling the stage. Suddenly, the obscure, 70s’ disco track ‘Walk the Night’ by the Skatt Brothers echoed throughout the arena, the curtain whisked out of view giving Queens of the Stone Age a groovy, sexy entrance that only they could procure. The curtain fell, the band strutted their way center stage and fell headfirst into ‘If I Had a Tail’ from their 2013 record, …Like Clockwork. From there, the band pretty much covered all bases with their entire discography. Their most notable tracks were there – ‘No One Knows’, ‘Sick, Sick, Sick’, ‘The Lost Art of Keeping a Secret’ and ‘Go with the Flow’ – whilst also pertaining to the hardcore fans with tracks such as ‘Regular John’ (which has been interchanged with ‘Avon’ at other gigs) – the first track of their debut record and ‘Monsters in the Parasol’.
