The outing will begin Sept. 16 in San Diego and has shows on tap through Nov. 3 at New York's Madison Square Garden. Additional dates are expected to be added.
Nine Inch Nails recently wrapped a North American tour with Dresden Dolls and is now immersed in international festival and headlining dates through August. Queens Of The Stone Age is touring Europe through July 10 in Dublin and will resume Aug. 17 in Portugal.
Both bands will be out behind their new Interscope albums; NIN's "With Teeth" has sold more than 494,000 copies since its May 3 release in North America, according to Nielsen SoundScan, while QOTSA's "Lullabies To Paralyze" has shifted more than 252,000.
In related news, QOTSA frontman Josh Homme has pleaded no contest to battery stemming from an incident last November at a Dwarves show in Los Angeles. He was sentenced to 36 hours of anger management therapy.
According to Dwarves frontman Blag Dahlia, Homme started a fight with him backstage before the show and broke a beer bottle over his head, but that charge was dismissed due to conflicting witness accounts. Homme pled guilty to battery for punching Dahlia.
The two artists' friendship apparently soured after former Dwarves member Nick Oliveri was booted from QOTSA in early 2004.
