In honor of the fifth anniversary of the The Bataclan terrorist attack in Paris, Queens of the Stone Age will stream an unreleased concert.
The tragedy occurred on November 13, 2015 at an Eagles of Death Metal show. Queen’s of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme is a founder of Eagles of Death Metal, but he wasn’t in Paris that night. Terrorists fired shots and killed 130 people. Among those who died was Nick Alexander, the band’s merch manager.
The special stream will reveal unseen footage from their MONA (Museum of Old and New Art) acoustic show in Tasmania. The show premieres on November 13. Proceeds will go to The Nick Alexander Memorial Trust and the Life for Paris charity.
“The Nick Alexander Memorial Trust award grants for musical equipment to community groups and small charities across the UK.” The charity focuses on helping “the most disadvantaged and marginalised sectors of society, be that through poverty, physical or mental illness, disability, ethnicity or age.”
Life for Paris supports the victims and families affected by the terrorist attack.
“2020 is a really messed up year, and people in need need you more than ever. Donate what you can, if you can,” said Homme’s. The stream will be available to watch on Queens of the Stone Age YouTube page from 9am PST to 6pm GMT (Paris). Viewers can donate to either charity while watching the show.
