Last Friday, Queens Of The Stone Age released their dark, but excellent, new album, In Times New Roman… Yesterday (June 20), they returned to the UK for the first time since 2018, for a show at The Piece Hall in Halifax.

Among other highlights (just look at that opening one-two), the set featured plenty of cuts from ITNR…, including the first-ever live airing of Made To Parade, as well as a tribute to late Queens member Mark Lanegan in the form of In The Fade from 2000's Rated R, and God Is In The Radio from 2002's Songs For The Deaf, both of which he originally sang.

Check out the action from the night in our exclusive gallery...
