Although Queens of the Stone fans obviously would’ve been happier seeing the band before now, one advantage to Tuesday’s concert at Roy Wilkins Auditorium coming 10 months after the release of its latest album was the greater familiarity with the newest material. Fans anticipated the twists and turns in the dark epic “Kalopisa” and sang along to “My God Is the Sun” like it was an old hit.
The band played eight of the 10 tracks off the new record, plus one little-known rarity (“The Fun Machine”), leaving less room for the actual oldies and resulting in a few lulls (“I Appear Missing”). But the overall impact of such a newbie-laden set list was nonetheless impressive.

You Think I Ain't Worth a Dollar, but I Feel Like a Millionaire / No One Knows / Avon / My God Is the Sun / Burn the Witch / Smooth Sailing / …Like Clockwork / If I Had a Tail / I'm Designer / Little Sister / Kalopisa / I Appear Missing / I Sat by the Ocean / Make It Wit Chu / The Fun Machine Took a Sh** and Died / Sick, Sick, Sick / Go With the Flow ENCORE: The Vampyre of Time & Memory / Feel Good Hit of the Summer / A Song for the Dead
