Queens Of The Stone Age‘s mammoth Villains world tour is almost complete, but last week they played a special one-off charity show at Hobart’s MONA (Museum of Old and New Art), in Tasmania, Australia. All proceeds from the show went to the Royal Hobart Hospital’s Paediatrics Ward, raising over $20,000.

In a statement preceding the event, Queens’ frontman Joshua Homme elaborated on why he wanted to do the show. “I sit with [wife] Brody [Dalle]’s Mum and enjoy the wild, utterly Australian beauty,” he said. “I think Mona is a perfect example of Tassie [Tasmanian] individuality, so playing there is an honour.”

In a Facebook post released by Frontier Touring, it has been revealed that following the show, the band paid a visit to the hospital. “The day after the show,” the Facebook Post reads, “the band made a special visit to the hospital – dropping off presents, and presenting monies to staff, and showing their support for a city close to the band’s heart. Josh Homme even took along his mother-in-law, mum of rocker and wife Brody Dalle-Homme.”

Check out this awesome clip of the band performing “The Way You Used To Do” from MONA:

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
