Queens of the Stone Age are currently on tour in Europe, and while they're there they're going to play a show somewhere no other band has played: the Catacombs in Paris.

“…we’re gonna play in the Paris Catacombs, and we’ll be the first band to do so. And I’ve been working on it for 18 years, trying to get myself inside of this exalted place in Paris. And it’s completely live,” Frontman Josh Homme revealed during a Hellfest press conference (via ThePRP). "I’d like to take some of these ideas, which are sort of ubiquitous – like a live record – and do something a little different with them. Because I think with the way the Internet is, people can see us play live so simply, on so many different ways, that I’d like to do something live that cannot be seen in a way that is not often done."

“And we release those versions. And let the fans control the rest," he continued. "The fans can control the rest of how to see us live. Come see us play, watch it online. I don’t care how a baby takes his medicine – blown up the a** or down the throat. However you find our music and however you wanna find it is fine for me, but I would like to try to do some of these ideas in a different way. So, that’s why I mentioned the Catacombs.”

QOTSA plan to spend the rest of the summer in Europe and return to the States for a short tour with The Kills this fall. See a full list of tour dates here and watch Homme's full press conference below (the Catacombs discussion comes up around the 18-minute mark).
