I was starting to get a little nervous that I'd miss out on all the fun with Queens of the Stone Age having not headed to Download Festival this weekend. Turns out, I was wrong to worry as the band have just announced a handful of UK tour dates set for November this year. The band will bring their new album, ...Like Clockwork, and their impressive back-catalogue, of course, to The Hydro in Glasgow, Manchester's Evening News Arena, Birmingham's NIA and Wembley Arena, London. Tickets are on general sale next Friday, June 21st. These are some pretty big venues. Last time I saw them play the UK they were playing Manchester Academy which fits around 2000 people in it. Manchester's Evening News Arena on the other hand is nearly 10 times bigger than that at 20k!
