Friday and Saturday, the 7th and 8th of September, Margaret Court Arena (supporting Queens of the Stone Age)
Supporting Queens of the Stone Age at their Melbourne shows in September (as well as for the rest of their Australian tour) is none other than local blues legend, C.W. Stoneking. The eccentric singer-songwriter and guitarist first gained wide-spread critical acclaim with his 2005 album “King Hokum,” which was reminiscent of a country blues recording from the 1930s. Stoneking expanded that sound with a band and calypso influences on his 2008 album “Jungle Blues,” while his most recent release, “Gon’ Boogaloo” incorporated rockabilly and rhythm & blues sounds into his calypso country blues. C.W. Stoneking supports Queens of the Stone Age at the Margaret Court Arena on September 7.
