MONA FOMA 2024 rolls out the red carpet for rock royalty Queens of the Stone Age

MF24-Queens-of-the-Stone-Age-photo-by-Andreas-NeumannOne of rock’s longest-loved outfits, Queens of the Stone Age, is the first act announced for Mona Foma 2024 – the Museum of Old and New Art’s summer celebration of music, art and live events.

On tour in Australia for the first time in over six years, Queens of the Stone Age will bring their electrifying performances and iconic hits to Mona’s lawns on Friday 16 February 2024.

Fans will be immersed in high-energy, open-air performances of songs from the band’s new album In Times New Roman… alongside hits from their chart-topping back catalogue, all delivered with QOTSA’s trademark swagger.

Queens of the Stone Age will be supported by Perth-based psychedelic rock band Pond and six-piece Melbourne-based ensemble Gut Health.

“When one of rock’s most kick-ass and vital bands wants to visit Tasmania it is only natural for Mona Foma to be the host,” said Brian Ritchie, Artistic Director Mona Foma.

“Therefore we are rolling out the red carpet for Josh, Troy, Dean, Michael and Jon on a larger scale than their previous performance inside the museum. The Mona lawn will come alive with the symbiotic relationship between Queens of the Stone Age and their rabid following.”

With pre-sale tickets for Queens of the Stone Age selling out, general public tickets go on sale Monday 30 October (1.00pm). For first access, subscribe to the mailing list:
