If we can somehow make it to 2021, we have Queens of the Stone Age concerts to love forward to. The Josh Homme-led rock band are confirmed to play next year’s Reading and Leeds Festival in the UK, marking their first public performances in three years.

QOTSA made a surprise appearance at the Imperial Ball charity concert earlier this year, joining Johnny Depp on stage for a brief nine-song set. However, Reading and Leeds mark the band’s first publicly announced performances since they wrapped up their “Villains Tour” in 2018.

Homme has kept busy during quarantine with a series of odd-ball performances. He played QOTSA’s “Villains of Circumstance” from his bathroom, teamed up with Sharon Van Etten for a cover of (“What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding”, played a solo version of Them Crooked Vulture’s “Spinning in Daffodils” for Lollapalooza’s virtual festival, and covered The Clash for a Joe Strummer tribute livestream.

He’s also expressed interest in a Kyuss reunion, though based on QOTSA’s upcoming activity, it would appear nothing is imminent.
