Main Stage co-headliners Queens Of The Stone Age are certainly no strangers to Reading & Leeds Festivals, having graced the Main Stage four times and appeared at the festival five times in total since their inception in 1996. This year the band take a well-deserved step up to headline the Festivals for the first time, playing a UK festival exclusive performance and their only UK show of 2014.
From their 1998 self-titled debut and 2002’s true breakthrough album ‘Songs For The Deaf’ which contained the ubiquitous single ‘No One Knows’, through to last year’s triumphant Number One US and Number Two UK album ‘…Like Clockwork’ they are a true rock tour de force. The band’s back catalogue is full of undisputed anthems peppered with truly iconic riffs and frontman Josh Homme’s distinct, soulful vocal.
Following a year of arena tours the only true home for a band of their calibre is stepping into the prestigious Main Stage headline slot to close the festival on the Friday at Reading.
