The two bands will play eight dates together in Australia and New Zealand

Josh Homme has discussed his band Queen Of The Stone Age’s forthcoming joint tour with Nine Inch Nails.

The two bands are about to embark on an eight-date tour of Australia and New Zealand, with the headliner for each night being determined by the toss of a coin.

When asked if the two groups would consider performing their medley of Nine Inch Nails’ ‘Copy Of A’ and Queens of the Stone Age’s ‘My God Is the Sun’, which was cut short at the Grammy Awards, Homme told Triple J that he wouldn’t rule it out, but said that “the initial plan is for everyone to do their thing.”

He added: “So much of the time it sounds lovely to smash it all together. Let’s just start by everyone kicking their ass and doing their thing.”

The eight-date run is set to begin at the Sydney Entertainment Centre on 6 March, 2014 and continue on visiting Newcastle, Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Brisbane, Auckland and Christchurch.

The bands will be supported on the tour by Homme’s wife and former Distillers frontwoman Brody Dalle. Watch footage of Dalle talking about the tour below.
