Queens Of The Stone Age have been gradually revealing their tour plans for 2023 – alongside Open’er, they will also be playing Southside Festival and Hurricane Festival, which both take place in Germany in June. The band haven’t played a headline show since 2018, and had to pull out of headline slots at both Reading & Leeds and Spain’s Mad Cool in 2021 due to “restrictions and logistics”.

Lizzo recently completed a North American tour in support of her new album ‘Special’, bringing out Missy Elliott and Cardi B to perform ‘Tempo’ and ‘Rumors’ respectively on the last night at LA’s Kia Forum. A second North American leg scheduled for next spring was announced shortly afterwards. She will also be touring the UK and Europe in February and March next year with Joy Crookes supporting. You can buy your tickets here.

Elsewhere, a HBO documentary about Lizzo’s life and rise to fame, Love Lizzo, debuted yesterday (November 24). It shows footage of the singer during her formative years in which she explains that she didn’t feel confident enough to think one day she could be performing songs on a stage for thousands of people.

In the initial trailer, she said that her career “came very close to not being a thing”, as it is later revealed that she felt like giving up several times, and door after door was slammed in her face. “Nobody was trying to sign a fat black girl that rapped and sang and played the flute.”
