Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme called out two audience members engaged in a fight during their October 24th concert at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Homme took to the mic to address them from the stage, saying: “What’s going on? Is this something like a fight? We’re not here to fight. If you want to fight, stick your head up your ass and fight for air — and get the fuck out.”
He continued: “We’re here to dance, everybody’s going to get laid, and we don’t want security to be all over the place… So don’t be a dick. We’re not the soundtrack to you fighting, we’re the soundtrack to you fucking. If you don’t like that, get the fuck out.”
Homme stepped away from the mic at one point and verbally engaged with the rowdy audience members. Homme’s speech was met with a hearty round of applause before the band kicked into “Domesticated Animals” from its new album Villains.
