QOTSA Cancel Tour Dates As Josh Homme Flies Home For Emergancy Surgery

As for what caused Josh Homme to require emergency surgery, no one knows (excuse the pun). The band did not issue a statement detailing what Josh is going through, so it’d be polite not to speculate on his health or why the surgery is required. Finger’s crossed it is nothing too serious. 

Every effort was made to push through and play for you, but it is no longer an option to continue” – Band’s Statement

New Queens of The Stone Age Album

The band had been scheduled to perform at various headline shows and festivals throughout Europe, including the Festival Jardin Sonore in France and the Electric Castle Festival in Romania. However, these plans have been abruptly halted as Homme needs to return to the United States for immediate medical attention.

The social media post conveyed the band’s disappointment and apologized to their fans, acknowledging the inconvenience caused. “Queens are gutted we aren’t able to play for you,” the statement read. The band also mentioned that ticket holders for the affected headline shows will be contacted directly with further information. Those with festival tickets are advised to check the respective festival websites for updates.

Impacted Tour Dates

  • 10/07 – Festival Jardin Sonore – Vitrolles, FR
  • 13/07 – Pohoda Festival – Trencin, SK
  • 16/07 – Zitadelle Spandau – Berlin, DE
  • 17/07 – Colours of Ostrava – Ostrava, CZ

  • 20/07 – Electric Castle Festival – Cluj, RO

This development comes after Homme’s public revelation last year that he had been diagnosed with cancer in 2022, which required extensive treatment. No further details have been released regarding his current health condition or whether the band’s scheduled shows in August will also be affected.

Fans are encouraged to visit the Queens of the Stone Age’s official website for the latest updates. Despite the setback, the band remains hopeful and committed to returning to the stage as soon as Homme’s health permits.
