The Strokes played Mexico for the first time in 5 years on Friday night. Despite Nick having to sit down due to a broken foot judging by the clips emerging on You Tube he still managed to rock the hell out.

Brief clip of Julian mentioning Nick’s injury
The Modern Age
The second day of the Pearl Jam Festival provided yet more collaborations. I honestly love it when The Strokes perform with other people it always add in an extra element of fun and the guys clearly have a blast.
Julian joined QOTSA on stage during Sick Sick Sick – the song that he performed backing vocals and guitar for back in 2007. QOTSA singer Josh Homme returned the favour and came out for New York City Cops, as well as Eddie Vedder singing on Juicebox again.
Finally Julian (having a busy night) sang backing vocals on Pearl Jam’s Red Mosquito.
Overall sounds like another great night and I’m sure anyone at the concerts this weekend had a blast. I’m so jealous of anyone who went BTW ha

I haven’t found a video for Sick Sick Sick yet but will add it to this post if I do
Once again thanks to Jeff Ansari for a lot of coverage of the weekend
1.48 into this clip you can see Nick and Albert talk about Pearl Jam, Nick who I think along with Julian is the biggest fan of the band in The Strokes is clearly ecstatic to be playing at the festival
After last weekend’s epic performance with Pulp’s Jarvis Cocker this weekend has given us yet another collaboration. The Strokes were part of the bill for Pearl Jam’s 20th Anniversary celebrations.
If you’ve ever read any interviews with the guys you know how Pearl Jam and the Grunge movement was a massive influence on the band. Eddie Vedder previously joined The Strokes on stage during the Rolling Stone 1000th edition party back in 2006 and then the Pearl Jam singer along with QOTSA’s Josh Homme covered Mercy Mercy Me with The Strokes.
Now the love fest continues with Eddie joining The Strokes on stage once again for Juicebox
Julian then returned the favour and got on stage during Pearl Jam’s set helping with Not For You.
The Strokes played Leeds Festival tonight with a slightly different set from Reading. Sadly no official footage for the show so keep an eye out on You Tube for any fan recorded videos
