Queens of the Stone Age, 8/15/13

QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE @ RED ROCKS | 8/15/13 Drawing liberally from a broad range of its catalog, Queens of the Stone Age planned its Red Rocks set out especially well last night. Everything rolled forward with ample momentum, but the band and the crowd both had plenty time to breathe. The song choices, some of which had minor changes in the delivery, were perfectly complimented by the visuals, as columns of light danced across the stage and projected into the crowd and shot though the fetching nighttime sky.
