QUEENS ON THE STONE AGE WILL TURN ME ON AGAIN!

Yeah, yeah, yeah!!!

Back in February I was telling you about the rumour spread by the band themselves about the possibility of touring just playing their self-titled debut album, remember?

Rumors were followed by confirmations, but European tour seemed to have forgotten  Spain, although there are many fans of the band here. Tickets for the shows got sold out immediately, in a matter of few hours. Again it was like “Shit, I’m gonna miss this!”

I had told you I had seen them back in the 90’s when supporting this first album and felt totally in love with Josh Homme singing, the riffs, lyrics and everything, so I needed to see this again.

Today, Last Tour International, the promoters which organize  Azkena Rock Festival, were to confirm some more bands early morning. It’s taken a couple of hours to confirm the great news: QOTSA are headlining the second day of the festival!!!

This decision has been controversial and reactions completely contradictory. Sorry for the people disappointed, I can’t be happier. Well, yes I could, but I was really  willing to see them again, this time in a festival, and playing hit after hit.

Cannot describe how I feel whenever I think of me standing in front of the stage seeing these guys opening with Regular John, following with Avon and If Only, and the rest. Uff! This gives me goose bumps.

Here is a taste of what’s coming….

Queens Of The Stone Age – If Only

Definitely Queens of the Stone Age are one of my top fav bands ever, and I’m gonna see them again. Yes, once more, AIN’T LIFE GRAND???

BEWARE!! EVIL ELVIS IS COMING!

Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! Another good news filtered through the net: Danzig will be playing on Saturday, June 25th @ Azkena Rock Festival. Although there’s no official notification from the festival organization, the band’s website has confirmed it, and it’s gonna be awesome.

It’s true is not Danzig’s hottest moment, but who cares? I just wanna listen to Mother, Snakes of Christ and a bunch of hits from the early years, get pissed and sing as hell.

When I read it on FB this morning, I couldn’t believe it, man! A tear was showing at the corner of my left eye, and I’ve realized I was shaking for the excitement. There are still some bands able to make me feel this way and Danzig is one of those. I know it’s not going to be the best gig ever, but nevermind, Evil Elvis in front of me will be wicked!!

Still have my double room available to share, anybody interested??
