QotSA frontman cancels gig after fracas

Queens of the Stone Age's Josh Homme was injured in a bar brawl in New York City on April 6th, forcing the guitarist to cancel a show with his side project Eagles of Death Metal that night.

Homme and Distillers' frontwoman Brody Dalle were at Niagra, a bar in the City's East Village neighborhood following an Eagles gig when Homme and another patron reportedly exchanged angry words and blows at about 2:30 a.m. Homme's publicist said he was injured in the skirmish, which prompted the cancellation of the Eagles of Death Metal's appearance in Philadelphia that night. Homme had sufficiently recovered to appear on Late Night With Conan O'Brien on Wednesday night.
