Queens Of The Stone Age are set to finish up their '...Like Clockwork' world tour with a Halloween party in Los Angeles.

The rock band have announced plans for the October 31 gig at The Forum, which will see a headline set from the band with support from former band member Nick Oliveri's Uncontrollable as well as The Kills and JD McPherson. The evening will also boast a "creepy assortment of carny types and sideshow surprises." There will be a haunted house in the venue's parking lot as well as a costume competition which will see the King and Queen of Halloween crowned. Tickets go on general sale on July 11.

Queens Of The Stone Age will co-headline Reading and Leeds Festivals this August with Paramore. They join Arctic Monkeys and Blink-182 on the top of the bill. It will be both Queens Of The Stone Age and Paramore's only UK festival appearances of 2014.

Last month Queens frontman Josh Homme was joined onstage at London's Royal Festival Hall by Mark Lanegan at a special solo acoustic show as part of this year's Meltdown festival. The set featured a number of covers, including Dean Martin’s 'Memories Are Made Of This', Marty Wilde's 'Bad Boy' and 'Dark As A Dungeon', made famous by Johnny Cash when he, as Homme explained, "played it in jail to a bunch of convicts." Homme also played a new song called 'Villains Of Circumstance', which he claimed to have "made up 30 minutes ago".
