Queens of the Stone Age + Masters of Reality @ Trianon, Paris, June 19 2013

Queens of the Stone Age + Masters of Reality @ Trianon, Paris, June 19 2013


The hottest gig of the year so far, sold-out immediately but don't worry they'll be back on Nov 13 @ Zénith in Paris. We probably won't go as Bob Dylan is playing @ Grand Rex on the same day.
Doors opened at 6:00pm
Not a lot of scalpers outside as the security is checking ID on the way in, then they give you a wristband. What's the point of having a wristband once you're in ? anyway...

Masters of Reality is opening and it's their first ever show in Paris. Lots of Stoners were expecting this one, Cool 45 min set.
After a long intermission the band that everyone's expecting: QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE.
There are many songs from the new album "Like Clockwork" that are sounding "ok" for most of them but nothing can't be better than the old stuff.
There's a big screen in the back showing images from the recent videos that are looking a bit like the one from Gorillaz.
Josh is looking good with his short hair and is trying to speak a bit of french when introducing the musicians.
The band is tight and kicking ass even though the setlist could have been better.
Kick ass show !
SETLIST: "song for the dead" NOT played
