Rocker Nick Oliveri is set to reunite with Queens Of The Stone Age for a Halloween concert in California next month (Oct14).

The bassist was fired from the band in 2004, but he will rejoin his former band members on 31 October (14) when they perform at The Forum in Los Angeles.

He tells NME.com, "(Frontman) Josh (Homme) asked me to come up and do six songs with Queens, like an encore set. A reunion, but not a reunion. I'm going to get up and play some bass and sing some songs at the end of the show. It should be an interesting night."

The bassist also hinted it was possible he could reunite with the band full time.

He continues, "That's pretty much up to Josh. It's his band, and when he pulls the trigger on something, it's up to him. I put myself out there a few different times in the past 10 years at Queens shows.

"I'd go and see them play and say, 'Hey man, I'm here! Do you want me to sing a song?' I stopped asking him after a while, and then he asked me! It's pretty much just when he wants to do something, these days. It's not up to me.

"I always put myself out there, and so finally he came up with this Halloween date. First he asked for my band to open up... Then he got back to me and said, 'At the end, do you want to do some of the old songs?' I was like, 'Sure man! Let's do it!'"
