Queens Of The Stone Age brought their UK tour to a close with an extra-special intimate show in London last night (December 6).

The desert rockers rounded off their two-week visit by playing the fifth birthday celebrations of MTV2's 'Gonzo' at the Shepherd's Bush Pavilion.

Also appearing were Gallows and Lethal Bizzle.

The band wheeled out their greatest hits in front of a star-studded crowd that included Franz Ferdinand, The Cribs, The Streets' Mike Skinner, Hadouken! and Maximo Park.

Once again, frontman Josh Homme, as he did at the band's London Brixton Academy show last week, broke into Amy Winehouse's 'Rehab' during 'Feel Good Hit Of The Summer'. The breakdown also saw him say "Zane (Lowe, host) , your Mom says happy birthday. Wait, we were doing something weren't we…"

Later, Homme said: "We started off playing at parties and that's how we'd like it to end."

The set was:

'Sick, Sick, Sick'
'Feel Good Hit Of The Summer'
'The Lost Art Of Keeping A Secret'
'Misfit Love'
'Little Sister'
'Make It Witchu'
'3s and 7s'
'Go With The Flow'
'A Song For The Dead'

Queens Of The Stone Age return to the UK in February next year, calling at:

Edinburgh Corn Exchange (February 9)
Leeds University (10)
London Hammersmith Apollo (11)
Southampton Guildhall (12)
