Queens of the Stone Age on ‘…Like Clockwork’ and the Grammys

Screw big arenas: Queens of the Stone Age coming to a distinguished theater near you

On the smaller, more intimate venues for this tour: “Well, we get a choice when we’re headlining. We love playing really beautiful old theaters that just feel good to be in, as opposed to the sterile nature of arenas. It’s more intimate, more magical.” Shuman also agreed that “the new material may resonate better in a theater setting.” But, even though the live set list—which the band changes every night—will certainly be built around ...Like Clockwork, Shuman indicated that this performance would be a discography-spanning affair. Good news for all you 30-somethings, like me, who can’t let go of Songs for the Deaf.

On the Grammy Awards: “Josh is friendly with the producers of the show and since we [were] nominated, the idea of us closing out the show came up. We’re doing a co-headlining tour with Nine Inch Nails in Australia, so that just made sense. We [were] honored to be a part of the show.” After remarking that the gramophones aren’t even given out on the telecast and that rock hasn’t had much of a place in the show in general, Shuman still gushed, “I mean, we’re honored. And glad that [The Recording Academy made] rock ‘n’ roll such a part of the show.” Us too, Mikey Shoes. Us too.

Necessary footnote: Make sure you get your ass to the Majestic early for the exquisite death-folk stylings of Chelsea Wolfe.
