Josh Homme has revealed Queens of the Stone Age have booked a gig performing inside the Catacombs of Paris.

Homme announced the show during a press conference at Hellfest 2024. He told the crowd that Queens will be the first band to perform beneath the city after he spent “18 years” trying to make it happen. The performance will be recorded live.

The Catacombs of Paris are a massive underground maze filled with the bones of over six million people, created in the 1700s to help with the city’s crowded cemeteries. It stretches for miles beneath Paris.
