Queens of the Stone Age were ejected from their own show at a Californian rehab centre last week.
The gig, a light-hearted breeze through six of the act’s songs, immediately took something of a wrong-turn when Homme and co. opened their set with ‘Feel Good Hit of the Summer’.
Security staff at the clinic were left unimpressed by the song’s opening refrain of “nicotine, valium, vicodin, marijuana, ecstasy and alcohol… c-c-c-c-c-cocaine”.
So, the band were promptly “manhandled” from the building, runs the NME.com report; presumably booted onto the streets of LA.
The band are soon to head over for a UK tour - we've already published the dates here; but we may as well reiterate.
With support coming from Eighties Matchbox B-line Disaster, QOTSA will play the following shows:
23 Brighton Dome
24 Liverpool Academy
25 Nottingham Rock City
26 London Brixton Academy
28 Glasgow Academy
29 Newcastle Academy
1 Bristol Academy
2 Manchester Apollo
3 Birmingham Academy
4 Reading Rivermead
