After The Strokes tremendous comeback show at the Capitol Theatre last Saturday the band took to the stage at the Governors Ball Festival (which has been trying to book the band for the last few years now) and played another great set judging from the tweets fans posted after the show. It was the same setlist as last week but what a setlist that is
01. Barely Legal
02. Welcome To Japan
03. Automatic Stop
04. Machu Pichu
07. Take It Or Leave It
08. One Way Trigger
09 Under Control
10. Heart In A Cage
11. Hard To Explain
14. Happy Ending
15. The End Has No End
17. Last Night
18. NYCC (Encore)
Hard To Explain Live at Governors Ball (07 June 2014)
One Way Trigger Live at Governors Ball (07 June 2014)
Julian Casablancas played his first set at Governors Ball early Friday evening. The set was fairly short and there were no songs from Phrases For The Young played which is a shame but he did perform Instant Crush the song he collaborated with Daft Punk on. On stage Julian said that his new record will be out in September.

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.

- One Way Trigger
- Under Control
- Heart in a Cage

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

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!
Well something was definitely coming after The Strokes official Twitter came back to life over the weekend and now that something is a show in the band’s home state, New York. They will be playing on Saturday 31st May at the Captitol Theatre, Port Chester, NY.
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. The interesting thing is that he mentions a song that Julian has done vocals on that The Strokes recorded, will this new song get released this year, will they play it at their upcoming shows? Lets hope so!
