Queens Of The Stone Age front man Josh Homme is to play a rare solo acoustic set as part of James Lavelle’s Metldown festival.

Homme will be performing at the London festival on the 16th of June. In a statement Lavelle is quoted as saying: “”I’m thrilled to announce my long term friend and collaborator Joshua Homme who will be playing a one off acoustic gig that will round off what has been an incredible year for one of the world’s greatest rock n roll stars. Expect something truly magical.”

The festival will take place from June 13-22 at London’s Southbank Centre. Chrissie Hynde will play her first live show in five years at the event to coincide with the release of her debut solo album this summer.

Queens Of The Stone Age will return to the UK in August when they headline the Reading and Leeds festival alongside Paramore.

Neneh Cherry, ESG, Grandmaster Flash, Goldie and Trentemoller are also set to perform at Meltdown this year.
