For Queens of the Stone Age, R&L marks the band’s first announced concert in three years. Aside from a brief charity performance earlier this year, Josh Homme and company haven’t been on the road since 2018, when they finished touring in support of their most recent album, 2017’s Villains.

Meanwhile, Homme and QotSA guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen recently covered the Clash classic “Train in Vain” during a livestream that paid tribute to the late Joe Strummer.
