Queens Of The Stone Age‘s mammoth Villains world tour is almost complete, but last week they played a special one-off charity show at Hobart’s MONA (Museum of Old and New Art), in Tasmania, Australia. All proceeds from the show went to the Royal Hobart Hospital’s Paediatrics Ward, raising over $20,000.

In a statement preceding the event, Queens’ frontman Joshua Homme elaborated on why he wanted to do the show. "I sit with [wife] Brody [Dalle]’s Mum and enjoy the wild, utterly Australian beauty," he said. "I think Mona is a perfect example of Tassie [Tasmanian] individuality, so playing there is an honour."

In a Facebook post released by Frontier Touring, it has been revealed that following the show, the band paid a visit to the hospital. "The day after the show," the Facebook Post reads, "the band made a special visit to the hospital – dropping off presents, and presenting monies to staff, and showing their support for a city close to the band’s heart. Josh Homme even took along his mother-in-law, mum of rocker and wife Brody Dalle-Homme."

Check out this awesome clip of the band performing "The Way You Used To Do" from MONA:
