Queens of Stone Age reaching end of U.S. tour

Queens of the Stone Age continues their touring support for their latest album this winter and will be making a stop in Orlando at the Hard Rock Live on Feb. 7.

“…Like Clockwork” is Queens of the Stone Age’s sixth studio album and has received critical acclaim by music critics. The album is widely considered the band’s best work since their 2002 release of “Songs for the Deaf.”

Rolling Stone Magazine named the album the sixth-best album of 2013 and it was further recognized by receiving three Grammy-nominations in the categories of Best Rock Album, Best Engineered Album and Best Rock Performance for the album’s first single, “My God is the Sun.”

Fans of Queens of the Stone Age agreed with critics’ reviews and helped the album debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart with 91,000 copies sold.

Queens of the Stone Age have been together since 1996, but it wasn’t until 2002 that the band achieved big-time commercial success. One key component to the band’s success was Foo Fighters lead singer, Dave Grohl, who played the drums for the “Songs for the Deaf” album.

Once the band wraps up their North American Winter Tour, they will travel to Australia and New Zealand to join Nine Inch Nails for 10 shows.

Tickets range from $34.50 to $62 and can be purchased through Ticketmaster.com. For additional ticket information, please contact the Hard Rock Live at (407) 351-LIVE (5483).

Doors for the show open at 7:00 p.m. with the show starting promptly at 8 p.m.
