Photos: Queens of the Stone Age at Budweiser Stage

Queens of the Stone Age headlined Toronto’s Budweiser Stage on Saturday night in support of their latest full-length album Villains (via Matador). Josh Homme and the band performed with a stripped-down stage set up (no fancy lights or video show like back in 2013) but excitement remained high with a near perfect setlist (see below). The night also featured the Brighton based rock duo that slays Royal Blood as the opening act, who are touring in support of their critically acclaimed new album How Did We Get So Dark (via Warner Bros).

It was a solid night of music and even more rad getting to photograph QOTSA for the second time while on assignment for Blare (thanks for hooking me up with the media pass!). Check out all the photos from their set below along with fan favourites Royal Blood below.
