Well, actually only 9 of 10 songs were performed - the band has dropped "Fairweather Friends," which studio version features Elton John, Trent Reznor, Mark Lanegan and Nick Oliveri, for some reason, but it is still a huge debut.
QOTSA used "Keep Your Eyes Peeled" as the show opener, followed by "You Think I Ain't Worth a Dollar, but I Feel Like a Millionaire," the opening track of "Songs for the Deaf" album. The show setlist, which can be found below, features a bunch of Queens' older material from four previous band's albums, including likes of "Go With the Flow," "Burn the Witch," "Make It With Chu" and "Feel Good Hit of the Summer," blended perfectly with their newest stuff like "I Appear Missing," "Smooth Sailing," "Kalopsia" and "The Vampyre of Time and Memory" among others.
The show also featured screen visuals by Boneface, who draw the album cover and the band's short film "...Like Clockwork," which became part of new album promotion campaign.
Oh, yeah, the show also features ex-Mars Volta Jon Theodore as the band touring drummer.
And, in the end, the show was attended by a number of QOTSA friends, such as Kyuss drummer Brant Bjork, ex-QOTSA bassist Nick Oliveri and Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner. The former Queens' drummer Joey Castillo has also attended the show and tweeted the photo, which can be seen below, followed by text: "QOTSA @Wiltern tonite! Good show, proud of my brothers."
Queens of the Stone Age have previously announced "epic world tour." It's going to start at the Download Festival at Donnington Park in Castle Donnington, UK, where QOTSA will share stage with likes of Korn, Thirty Seconds to Mars, Slipknot, 3 Doors Down, Jimmy Eat World, Papa Roach, and Iron Maiden.
