Queens Of The Stone Age's current Australian tour is blowing crowds away but Tasmanian fans were gifted something extra special last week. 

The US rockers performed an exclusive and intimate acoustic set at Mona's Nolan Gallery last week which generated over $20,000 in funds going towards Royal Hobart Hospital Paediatrics Ward.

QOTSA made a visit to the hospital the following day to drop off gifts and present the money to the staff. 

"Mona’s communications’ networks nearly imploded due to unprecedented demand for tickets to this bespoke charity event," Mona music curator, Brian Ritchie, said.

"Punters drooled at their good fortune to hear world class rockers in the rarest of environments, The Nolan Gallery. The music throbbed, but there was a higher purpose, generating income to support Royal Hobart Hospital Children’s Ward."

Frontman Josh Homme also made a significant personal donation to the hospital through his charity, The Sweet Stuff, which he formed in 2013 with his father and brother.
