Queens of the Stone Age: deaf songs

Music news

Queens of the Stone Age returned with great fanfare to Paris to present their new album.

It took six years to Queens of the Stone Age to make his return to Paris. In the meantime, the group led by Joshua Homme had time to release a new album, entitled In Times New Roman… Proud of this record, the Americans performed no less than half of it, including “Obscenery”, performed for the very first time live in Paris. The singles “Emotion Sickness” and “Carnavoyeur” are also included.

However, those we like to call “qotsa” know how to surround their titles with effective hits, by performing from the outset the unstoppable “No One Knows”, without forgetting the unforgettable “Little Sister” or “Make It With Chu” , and its pink lights. With a sophisticated scenography, with a triangle lighting arrangement, the group offers a show that is both sober and sophisticated.

If the group mainly leaves the floor to its compositions, with around twenty titles linked together in a little less than two hours, Joshua Homme does not fail to compliment his won over audience and dedicate the song “God Is in the Radio” to the deceased Mark Lanegan, former contributor to Queens of the Stone Age.

In this incandescent atmosphere, the public does not fail to let off steam after six years of waiting, reaching the apotheosis during “A Song for the Dead”, with a circle pit to the most beautiful effect. Metal accents in the audience which allow the group to warm up for their next French appearance, planned for Hellfest 2024.
