Queens of the Stone Age and Eagles of Death Metal have confirmed a benefit appearance at Los Angeles's Club Nokia for Thursday, August 12. The show, to be held at Club Nokia, will raise funds for Eagles of Death Metal bassist Brian O'Connor, who was recently diagnosed with cancer and is currently undergoing treatment in Los Angeles. Net proceeds from the show will be contributed to a fund which has been established in conjunction with Sweet Relief Musicians Fund, to assist with Brian's medical aid and vital living expenses. Since so many musicians don't have health insurance and are burdened by health care costs when shit like this happens, it is crucial that a benefit show like this occurs to help raise funds.
Tickets on Sale to the Public Friday, July 16 at 10 AM PT at this location: http://www.ticketmaster.com/event/090044E7E1D46680?brand=clubnokia
The Los Angeles gig will be the second Josh Homme-organized benefit for O'Connor, the first being a show by Them Crooked Vultures which was held Monday, July 5 @ London's O2 Academy. O'Connor has some good friends supporting him and I am hoping he beats his cancer with both fists!
