The Strokes play New York comeback show

Last night The Strokes played their first show since November 2011 in their home state of New York at the Captitol Theatre, Port Chester.  The setlist did indeed include the live debuts of tracks of Comedown Machine and a few other songs the band haven’t played for the awhile like Razorblade.  Also having Take It Or Leave It early on in the set just seems so damn weird! But a nice change.

  1. Barely Legal
  2. Welcome to Japan
  3. Automatic Stop
  4. Machu Picchu
  5. Reptilia
  6. Razorblade
  7. Take It or Leave It
  8. One Way Trigger
  9. Under Control
  10. Heart in a Cage
  11. Hard to Explain
  12. 12:51
  13. Someday
  14. Happy Ending
  15. The End Has No End
  16. You Only Live Once
  17. Last Nite
  18. New York City Cops

Fan reports and videos are still coming in but here are a couple of videos for now.

The Strokes to play FYF Fest in LA with Julian Casablancas and Albert Hammond Jr solo sets

And I thought the Governors Ball double bill of The Strokes plus Julian Casablancas and the Voidz was an amazing opportunity well the FYF Festival which takes place in LA, August 23-24 manages to go one better by adding a solo set from Albert as well.

Julian and Albert play their shows on Saturday 23 August and The Strokes play the next day (Sunday 24th August)

Tickets go on sale May 22nd and I imagine its going to sell out pretty quickly!

Albert has given a few interviews recently talking about the band upcoming headlining slot at the Governors  Ball festival in June. He Spoke to Gigwise and NME.
