Queens of the Stone Age
+ The Dough Rollers @ Olympia
Paris, May 23 2011
Dough Rollers

This gig sold -out in ten minutes when tix were sold but they had saved a few tickets at the box office on the night so you could get one, at the balcony only, face value.
Nice support band with Dough Rollers playing some vintage Rock'n Roll, 50's style.
QOTSA, That's simple: IT WAS A MOTHER FUCKIN' KILLER SET, The first album is, by far, my favorite so it's a dream come true to hear that album in it's entirety in Paris.

"Give the Mule what he wants" :

After the 1st Encore they played a few songs that this time are far from being my favorite songs from the QOTSA catalogue( apart from "Little Sister")
Second Encore was a killer -no filler. see setlist for details.

SETLIST : 1) Regular John 2) Avon 3) If Only 4) Walkin' on the sidewalks 5) You would Know 6) How to handle a rope 7) Mexicola 8) Hispanic Impressions 9) The Bronze 10) Give the mule what he wants 11) I was a teenage hand model 12) You can't quit me baby ENCORE 13) Monsters in the Parasol 14) Turnin' on the screw 15) Into the hallow 16) Make it with Chu 17) Little sister ENCORE 2 18) Go with the flow 19) No one knows 20) A song for the dead
